ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Duke Energy Foundation is powering Florida communities with nearly $260,000 in grants to fund accessibility to the arts, promote diversity and inclusion, and address storm preparedness and COVID-19 challenges.

"Giving back to communities where we live and work is fundamental to who we are at Duke Energy," said Catherine Stempien, Duke Energy Florida president. "These grants will support 19 nonprofits that are critical to the vitality of the communities we serve and will help them continue to deliver important services during a pandemic that is reshaping all of our daily lives."

Among this year's recipients is Prospera, an economic development organization offering bilingual assistance to Hispanic entrepreneurs trying to establish or expand their business. Based in Orlando, Prospera provides Hispanic entrepreneurs with training, support and resources to help their businesses grow and prosper.

"Duke Energy has been a supporter and partner of Prospera for several years," said Prospera President and CEO Augusto Sanabria. "We value their belief in our mission and appreciate every investment they make to help us start, sustain and grow more Hispanic-owned businesses to achieve community prosperity.
