What is the 2020 Plan?

The 2020 Plan is a collective impact initiative designed to reduce the poverty rate by 30% by 2020 in South St. Petersburg, an area that occupies about one-third of the City of St. Petersburg and is the largest concentration of poverty in Pinellas County, Florida. The area is also home to 78% of St. Petersburg’s African American population.

The 2020 Plan formula for accelerating poverty reduction is simple: to help 2,000 “working poor and willing” parents to increase their family income to above the poverty line.
