Apalachicola Regional Summit to Ensure Equitable Community Impacts of BP Oil Spill Settlement Funds


The Apalachicola Regional Summit to Ensure Equitable Community Impacts of BP Oil Spill Settlement Funds will be held on July 29, 2016, at the Historic Holy Family Senior Community Center, 203 Dr. Frederick S. Humphries Street, Apalachicola, Florida from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 pm. 

The goal of the “summit” is to develop strategies to ensure African-American and minority communities, citizens, businesses and educational institutions have the opportunity to contribute to the recovery and long-term economic development of Apalachicola and the panhandle region of Florida through equitable distribution of oil spill settlement funds. 

The leading federal and state entities have been invited to provide updates to the community at-large in a morning session followed by an afternoon planning session led by an array of local and regional community organizations.  The summit is free and open to the public.  Interested parties can register on-site the day of the event starting at 9:30 a.m.
