Nearly $175,000 will go to the United Way of Southwest Virginia to help Hurley recover from flooding last August. Senator Mark Warner's office announced that the United Way will receive $174,458 from the Appalachian Regional Commission for the Hurley Disaster Recovery Project. The funds will support a public-private partnership that is coordinating long-term recovery efforts. The project will involve assisting 70 households with disaster relief and constructing or rehabilitating 50 homes. Last August, flooding killed one person and destroyed several homes in Hurley, but FEMA denied a request for individual assistance to those impacted.
