Applications are open for a new round of Magic City Match, an initiative that provides funding and resources for Black entrepreneurs in the Birmingham area to create or grow their businesses.

“Small businesses are essential to Birmingham’s vibrancy and economic growth, and Black entrepreneurs typically face greater barriers to success,” said David Fleming, president and CEO of REV Birmingham, the nonprofit economic development and revitalization organization leading Magic City Match.

“We are excited to strengthen Black-owned small businesses in Birmingham through the second year of Magic City Match, and we look forward to celebrating new business openings as a result of this program,” Fleming said in a news release announcing the new round of grants.
