McKinley Announces Proposed Funding for Projects Across the First District

Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman David B. McKinley announced the proposed funding for 13 projects submitted as Community Project Funding to the Appropriations Committee. This follows 2021, where every single one of the requests submitted by Congressman McKinley were funded.

“Anytime I can assist in bringing key funding into the state of West Virginia, I am proud to do so. I will never stop fighting for the people of West Virginia,” said Rep. McKinley. “These projects will go a long way in bringing much-needed infrastructure improvements throughout the first district. Funding these projects takes control out of the hands of the Biden administration and unelected bureaucrats who do not have West Virginians’ best interests at heart.”

The list of projects that were selected to receive funding are below:

  • Potomac Valley Hospital, Keyser, WV for facilities and equipment; $1,100,000
  • Grafton City Hospital, Grafton, WV for a substance use treatment and recovery program, including the purchase of supplies, equipment, and information technology, and wraparound services; $995,000
  • Greater Harrison County PSD River Crossing Replacement; $500,000
  • Village of Valley Grove Water System Improvements; $5,000,000
  • Newburg Independence Water Supply Line Project $2,000,000
  • Town of Davis Sewer Collection System Improvements $5,000,000
  • Mellin Ridge (Town of Harrisville) Water Line Extension; $400,000
  • Fund WV Grand Vue Park (Marshall County) Water Line Replacement; $410,438
  • Fund WV Kingwood Water Works (WISDOM Project); $4,000,000
  • Wheeling-Ohio County Airport (HLG) Critical Apron Pavement Rehab Phase; Ohio County Commission; $1,000,000
  • Second Interchange at I–70 Phase; Ohio County Commission; $730,000
  • Wood County Industrial Site Readiness and Redevelopment; Wood County Development Authority $500,000
  • Hancock County Video Monitoring in Cruisers, Body Cameras; $325,000

A wide range of factors were utilized in determining the final projects to submit, as only a fraction of the worthy projects were able to be chosen. Factors included input from an array of stakeholders, need, and community support for the projects. Final approval for the Community Funded Projects and their funding levels will now be voted on by the House and Senate.
