Two agencies at West Virginia University and one in northern Virginia have been awarded a grant to help examine the Appalachian Regional Commission's economic impact.
The goal of the nearly $300,000 grant is to help identify the economic development strategies that are most effective for the ARC, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year.
The ARC region consists of all of West Virginia and parts of 12 other states from Alabama to upstate New York.
