Birmingham program offering monthly payments to single moms


The city of Birmingham will soon start paying single mothers.

Mayor Randall Woodfin proposed the plan that was approved by the City Council on Tuesday.

A nonprofit called Mayors for a Guaranteed Income provided a $500,000 grant to pilot the program. Up to 110 single mothers who apply will receive $375 in monthly payments through the program.

Birmingham is the first Alabama city to join the program.
