The Jefferson County Commission has approved sending $2.7 million in federal funding to six organizations in the Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument district for tourism projects.

The organizations include the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame.

The $2.69 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds will be used by the groups not only for capital needs but to attract tourists to the Civil Rights National Monument, which was established in 2017 to preserve and commemorate the work of the 1963 Birmingham campaign, its Children’s Crusade, and other civil rights movement events and actions.
