Florida's 9th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Florida. The district stretches from eastern Orlando south-southeast to Yeehaw Junction. It also includes the cities of Kissimmee and St. Cloud.

From 2003 to 2012, it encompassed most of rural eastern Hillsborough County, northern parts of Pinellas County (including Clearwater) and the Gulf coast of Pasco County (including New Port Richey). The redistricting on January 3, 2013, completely reassigned the boundaries of the 9th district to mostly Osceola County with central Orange County plus northeastern Polk County,[1][2] while the former 9th district became parts of the 10th, 11th, 12th (Pasco County) or the 14th district which split Hillborough County with the 15th and 17th district. The 2013 redistricting also expanded the State of Florida from 25 to 27 districts, adding 2 at Miami-Dade County, Florida.

The district is currently represented by Democrat Alan Grayson.
