WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has announced that $2,134,042 from the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will go to various West Virginia counties.

The funding will be used for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program, a program focused on providing food and housing to West Virginians in need. $1,611,995 was provided through the American Rescue Plan via FEMA while $522,047 was given through annual appropriations.

“Addressing food insecurity and housing instability continues to be one of my top priorities, and I am pleased FEMA is investing more than $2 million across the state to provide food and housing assistance to West Virginians in need. Three quarters of this funding is allocated through the American Rescue Plan, which has been a lifeline for many West Virginians currently experiencing homelessness,” said Senator Manchin.
