Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has presented more than $12 million in Small Cities Block Grant funds for 13 critical infrastructure projects to support communities across West Virginia.

In total, more than $44 million in other federal, state and local funding will support these projects for more than 17,000 West Virginia households, improving infrastructure reliability statewide.

Small Cities Block Grant funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Community Development Division of the West Virginia Development Office manages the administration of these funds.

Regionally, a $1,500,000 grant was given the City of Pennsboro (Ritchie) to complete the third and final phase of necessary upgrades to its aging and antiquated wastewater treatment plant that services approximately 590 households.

This project allows the Town of Pennsboro to comply with a consent order to correct deficiencies at the wastewater treatment plant.
