Dozens of nonprofit organizations, many with connections to city leaders, are in line for another $4.6 million in federal COVID-19 relief money that the City Council could allocate tonight, with only limited oversight. The list includes several organizations whose leaders donated money to City Council election campaigns, in some cases for people they know.

Guests: Claire Heddles, Raymon Troncoso — WJCT reporters.
