Appalachian Regional Commission Awards $300,000 to Western Virginia Workforce Development Board for Substance Abuse Recovery Programs in Alleghany, Craig Counties and Covington

The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) today awarded $300,000 to the Western Virginia Workforce Development Board to develop a substance abuse recovery ecosystem and remove barriers to obtaining employment for those recovering from substance abuse in the Counties of Alleghany and Craig and the City of Covington. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement:

“Substance abuse can throw a person’s life off track, but the disruption does not need to be permanent. Helping those in recovery enter or reenter the workforce is an important step forward for them and allows local employers to benefit from their talents. Today’s ARC award of $300,000 to the Western Virginia Workforce Development Board will help develop recovery programs and aid individuals in the region on the path from substance abuse to workforce entry.”

ARC awarded this grant as part of its INvestments Supporting Partnerships In Recovery Ecosystems (INSPIRE) initiative.
