CHARLESTON, W.Va. — U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, and member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $500,000 in funding through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assess brownfield sites for future redevelopment in Brooke and Hancock counties.

“We’ve seen investments in brownfield sites pay off with redevelopment, jobs, and healthier outcomes in communities across our state,” Ranking Member Capito said. “This funding is great news for Brooke and Hancock counties, and will help strengthen our local economies in the northern panhandle for years to come. In my roles on the EPW and Appropriations committees, I’ll continue to fight to deliver needed resources for the assessment, cleanup, and revitalization of brownfield sites in West Virginia.”
