Congresswoman Carol Miller announced more than $1.9 million in Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) grants for southern West Virginia. Specifically, the grants listed below are part of the ARC INSPIRE Competition, a program to help move individuals with substance use disorder from treatment and recovery to re-entry into the workforce.
“The ARC INSPIRE Program does wonderful work to lift up those with substance use disorder in southern West Virginia,” said Congresswoman Miller. “Providing support, workforce training, and educational resources ensures a well-rounded approach to recovery and re-entry into the workforce. These grants are major steps forward in our mission to bolster our communities, help those in recovery, and combat the opioid epidemic.”
Local groups receiving funding include God’s Way Home in Rainelle which will receive $500,000 to develop or expand the recovery ecosystem through wraparound services in Greenbrier, Fayette, Nicholas, and Summers counties.
