There's Still Work To Be Done

The 2016 WV Floods seem like a distant memory to those of us who were unaffected by the flood, but as the recent headlines have made all too clear, there are still West Virginians in need of help after great losses in the 2016 flood. 

While recent attention on Flood Recovery efforts has focused on the Justice Administration's bungling of the WV Rise program, more help is on the way. 


Senator Joe Manchin, (D) West Virginia, says he has secured another $106 million through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

That's in addition to $150 million that has already been disbursed to flood victims over the past two years.

According to Senator Manchin, the new money has not been published yet in the federal register, but it will be available by the end of the fiscal year in September.

"I hope everything works out. We're going to assisting in every way possible, but West Virginia will have enough money, to do the job to help people get back their lives. It's just a shame that it's taken two years," said Senator Manchin.
