At a recent meeting, Moundsville City Council announced projects that would be funded by the first half of the American Rescue Plan funds. Moundsville received approximately $1.8 million in the first round of funding and is set to receive the same amount with the second round due this spring. The largest portion of the funds (approximately $1,100,000.00) will be invested to upgrade city infrastructure such as water, sanitary, and stormwater. Programs to get money into the hands of those who really need it make up the rest. Those include a Business Assistance Grant, a Resident Exterior Renovation Grant, and a Food Bank/Non-Profit Assistance Grant. City Manager Rick Healy said "City Council had numerous workshops to determine these programs and are excited to get much needed money into the hands of those affected by COVID. This includes residents, businesses, and non-profits, as well as much needed upgrades to infrastructure." City Countil and Administration are excited about these programs and expect them to assist many people in Moundsville. Applications are available now at the City Clerk's Office in the City Building at 800 6th Street. All programs will continue until funds are depleted. All programs have certain requirements for eligibility, and any questions can be directed to the City Clerk's Office at 304-845-3394.
