Manchin Announces More Than $28.2 Million for West Virginia Flood Relief
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced $28,244,069 in funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation for highway repairs across the state in response to damages that occurred as a result of the June 2016 and October 2017 flooding.
“Many parts of our state were severely damaged by the June 2016 and October 2017 flooding. But as a state, we came together and have shown yet again what a resilient people we are. This funding from the Department of Transportation will help as we continue to make critical repairs to our roads, bridges and highways so our communities can continue to bounce back from these floods. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for additional resources that support recovery efforts and projects that ignite economic growth in West Virginia,” Senator Manchin said.
