West Virginia Gets Additional $3.2M for Flood Recovery

CHARLESTON– West Virginia will receive an additional $3.2 million from the federal government for disaster recovery efforts.

U.S. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito and Joe Manchin announced the community development block grant funding Monday.

A statement released by the West Virginia senators says it brings the total the state will receive to help in disaster recovery efforts to more than $107 million.

Flooding last June killed 23 people statewide and destroyed or damaged thousands of homes, businesses, schools and infrastructure.
