Manchin Launches Web Page, Interactive Map Highlighting American Rescue Plan Funding For West Virginia
New web page can be accessed at www.manchin.senate.gov/arp
Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) launched a new web page to highlight the more than $4 billion in funding West Virginia will be receiving through the latest COVID-19 relief package, the American Rescue Plan. The web page also provides guidance to state and local leaders on how this funding may be used to help communities kill COVID-19 and fund infrastructure projects, and a map of estimated recovery funding for each West Virginia county and municipality. When the U.S. Department of Treasury publishes implementing guidance, it can be found on this website. Available grants will also be published. This new tool will be updated daily, as soon as new information is available.
The new web page can be accessed by visiting www.manchin.senate.gov/arp.
“The American Rescue Plan will provide West Virginia an unprecedented opportunity to jump-start its economy and make investments in critical infrastructure projects, with more than $4 billion in direct federal funding. The State of West Virginia will receive $1.25 billion, and West Virginia cities and counties will receive $624 million in direct relief funding. I fought hard to ensure states, counties and cities will be able to use relief funding to make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure. My new web page provides a one-stop shop for local leaders utilizing these funds to help their communities rebuild and recover, while also ensuring federal spending and reporting guidelines are followed to prevent waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer funds. Our cities and counties will truly be in control of their own destiny with this recovery funding, and I look forward to assisting them over the weeks and months ahead,” said Senator Manchin.
