Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe announced Wednesday more than a half million dollars in urgent need funding to repair homes damaged by heavy snow last winter in Coeburn.

McAuliffe says Coeburn will receive $534,000 in Community Development Block Grant Urgent Need Program funding.

It is to be used to rehabilitate 10 homes and provide reconstruction of an additional five that were significantly damaged.

The governor also announced $165,000 in community development funding to install new sewer lines in the Eisenhower Road area of Wise County.

That will alleviate the community relying on an aging septic system.
