 Birmingham City Council President William Parker is planning to make a $7 million dollar request from the roughly $1.8 billion in Federal CARES Act funding from the county and state.  The preliminary plans for the funding include:

  • Additional supplies like face masks, hand sanitizer, and testing kits for the public

  • On-going testing sites to service residents in all 99 neighborhoods through December

  • Hand-washing stations and other equipment for sanitizing large sporting venues

  • Non-contact temperature assessment devices

  • Community outreach: radio, television, flyers, billboards

  • WiFi access for residents in all 99 neighborhoods for tele-health accessibility

Parker plans to discuss more details about the funding request later in the week.
