City Council is expected to take action Aug. 11 on legislation providing a second round of financial relief totaling $7.24 million for nonprofit and for-profit businesses with revenue losses because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ordinance 2020-0412 would provide 66 Duval County professional and youth sports teams, churches and social service organizations with direct financial payments.

In June, the Council approved $16.54 million for 72 nonprofit and for-profit groups.

 The first round of payments came from $20 million in the $167 million the city received from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
