CHARLESTON, WV (AP) — Gov. Jim Justice has recommended 12 development projects located on or nearby abandoned mine lands to get over $27 million in federal funds.
The state’s Environmental Protection Department said the projects recommended Thursday include constructions for an ATV resort, a wildlife education center and water treatment systems.
The recipients applied for grant funding earlier this year and were considered by different state agencies and the governor’s office. The projects and their grants still need final approval by the federal government.
