Report: RISE says 3 more homes completed

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The RISE West Virginia long-term flood recovery program says three home projects were completed this week bringing the total number of projects completed to 111.

RISE, initially created following the June 2016, lists 80 homes involved in active construction. Most of those, 68, are reconstruction projects.

There are currently 368 active cases under RISE, 87 of those are awaiting various required approvals before construction bids can be awarded.

It’s possible RISE will have additional cases after a series of outreach events earlier this week by RISE and West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD). The events took place in Clendenin, Rainelle, White Sulphur Springs, Maysel and Richwood.
