Florida's 14th congressional district is an electoral district for the U.S. Congress and was reassigned in 2012, effective January 2013, to western Hillsborough County, Florida and Manatee County. After the district boundaries were changed in 2016, it is located entirely inside of Hillsborough County.[3][4] The district includes most of Tampa.

The former 14th district, in 2003–2012, was located in the Gulf Coast region in Southwestern Florida and included all of Lee County and portions of Charlotte and Collier counties. Fort Myers, Naples, Cape Coral and part of Port Charlotte were located in the district.

The district is currently represented by Democrat Kathy Castor.
