Lift Announcement

Huntington Mayor Steve Williams talks about the effect the ACT Now Coalition funding will have on his city Friday, Sept. 2, 2022.

People in or passing through Huntington’s Highlawn neighborhood should soon see construction begin on the first long-awaited redevelopment on the former ACF property.

Last week, the federal government’s Build Back Better Regional Challenge allocated $68.2 million to the Appalachian Climate Technologies Coalition, or ACT Now Coalition, for economic development initiatives. The grant is to be matched by $26 million from non-federal sources, making for an almost $100 million investment in 21 southern West Virginia counties.
