Florida's 17th congressional district is an electoral district for the U.S. Congress, located in south-central Florida. The district includes a large area of central Florida from eastern Tampa Bay to the western shores of Lake Okeechobee.

From 2003 to 2013 it was located in South Florida, and was a majority African American district. It included the southern parts of Broward County and the eastern parts of Miami-Dade County. Included within the district were Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Miramar, and North Miami. Most of this district is now the 24th District.

The current 17th was created after the 2010 census from portions of the old 12th and 16th Districts. Most of the district's territory came from the western portion of the old 16th. That district's second-term congressman, Republican Tom Rooney, ran for reelection in the 17th in 2012 and won. He was re-elected in 2014 and 2016, but did not for re-election in 2018.[6][7] Greg Steube was elected on November 6th.
