WEIRTON, W.Va.  — Approximately $4 million in federal grants announced Monday will assist with continuing development projects in Hancock and Brooke counties.

A group of dignitaries, including U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito and U.S. Rep. David McKinley, both R-W.Va., gathered along Three Springs Drive in Weirton to announce the funding from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

In offering a welcome, Pat Ford, executive director of the Business Development Corp. of the Northern Panhandle, said the projects being planned, and the funding provided, would not have been possible without the growing cooperative efforts between local, state and federal officials.
