The search for a new apartment in Birmingham is in its final days.
The Birmingham City Council on Wednesday voted to end the program that has allowed people to find apartments with no deposit, rent or deposit insurance for two years.
Birmingham Mayor Catherine Pugh said the council’s decision will mean that apartments are “now being advertised for sale.”
The program was supposed to be a way for the city to help its struggling rental market and attract people who would otherwise leave.
Birchville is among the city’s fastest-growing neighborhoods and the third-largest city in Alabama after Mobile and Birmingham.
Birchardville is a city of 6.7 million people, but the city is one of the most affordable in the state.
