WASHINGTON, DC (WVNS) — Beckley and other communities across West Virginia are receiving federal money in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding is coming from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development received $12.4 billion from the CARES Act. That is being distributed through Community Development Block Grants, Emergency Solutions Grants, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Grants. West Virginia is getting $18,840,000 of that money.

“We are working across all levels of government to deliver funding to help West Virginia respond to COVID-19,” said Rep. Carol Miller (R-WV). “These grants will provide important resources for our vulnerable populations, directly at the community level. We are all in this fight together against a single common enemy, working to reduce the spread of the virus and provide relief for all West Virginians impacted by the crisis.”
