Florida Beverage Assoc. Accepting Grant Applications for Community Programs

Focused on environmental sustainability and health

water treesThe Florida Beverage Association (FBA) is pleased to announce the sixth year of its Community Grant Program. FBA is the state trade association representing non-alcoholic beverage producers, marketers, bottlers, and distributors.

“Especially as we face new challenges because of COVID-19, FBA and its members recognize the importance of building upon our commitment to the communities we serve by awarding grants to local programs that promote environmental sustainability and health and wellness,” said Elizabeth DeWitt, president and CEO of the Florida Beverage Association.

Previously, Santa Rosa County, The Science and Environment Council of Southwest Florida, and Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, and the City of Orlando have been awarded grants to strengthen programs focused on environmental sustainability. Additionally, The Florida Recreation and Park Association Foundation, The City of Tampa, the “I’m a STAR” Foundation, and Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces received past grant awards for their focus on promoting nutrition and active lifestyles.

Grant applications should be submitted online by Monday, February 1, 2021. To be considered for a grant, all nominees must meet the requirements listed in the “Grant Program Criteria” found on the FBA website at www.flabev.org. Grants awarded through the FBA program are generally capped at $25,000; however, special programs and unique circumstances may justify a larger grant. In addition, some grant applications may be eligible for a matching grant from the American Beverage Foundation for a Healthy America (ABFHA).

All applications will be reviewed by the FBA Board Grant Subcommittee. FBA Community grant recipients will be selected and notified by the FBA Board of Directors by March 1, 2021. The FBA will submit their selections for award to the ABFHA matching grants program. Matching grants from the ABFHA will not be announced until May of 2020. General questions may be directed to FBA president and CEO Elizabeth DeWitt by phone at 407.385.2708 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
