CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia has recommended more than $18 million in Appalachian Regional Commission grant funding for 11 projects — chiefly those that improve water and sewerage infrastructure.
W.Va. Gov. Jim Justice stressed that the programming to be awarded was vital to the state's growing economy. “These upgrades are going to be phenomenal, and we really appreciate the Appalachian Regional Commission for giving us the ability to recommend and give these grants to these communities throughout West Virginia,” he said.
“These projects will not only address many of our community and economic development needs in the state but also take advantage of our assets so that we can continue to grow our economy.”
