Organizations will be afforded an opportunity to present to members of the Birmingham City Council at a series of “Special Called Joint Governmental Affairs and Public Information and Special Called Committee of The Whole Meetings.”

The City of Birmingham has been awarded over $141 million to respond to the public health emergency caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic and its negative economic impacts, these funds include assistance to households, small businesses, nonprofits, or aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel, and hospitality.
