Martinsburg opens portal for American Rescue funds

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Organizations and nonprofits hoping to get a slice of the sizeable economic recovery pie from the American Rescue Plan have a new way to make their requests known.

The City of Martinsburg announced this week it has created an online portal for funding requests.

The announcement says while a portion has been aside to repay funds that were spent to fight COVID-19, including costs for first responders, Martinsburg officials want to know how these funds could help businesses, nonprofits, or other enterprises recover and thrive.

The announcement says all requests will be compiled for consideration by members of Martinsburg City Council as they determine how to best use the funds to support economic recovery and development in Martinsburg.
