Virginia is receiving more than $1 million to repair infrastructure damaged in the December snowstorm.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Tuesday it would reimburse the state, local governments and private nonprofit organizations that helped during that storm. The agency says reimbursements for snowstorms in February are being processed and will be doled out later.
More than 50 localities are eligible for the funds.
State coordinating officer Michael Cline says the storm put a strain on many local governments and private organizations, and getting the reimbursements will help them recover.
