The Fund’s Demolition Program has evolved into the West Virginia Property Rescue Initiative (WVPRI) through a bill passed by the State legislature during the 2015 session. The Fund will allocate $1 million per fiscal year over the next five years to the WVPRI. The Fund will provide low-interest rate loans to municipalities and counties to be used to demolish or rehabilitate dilapidated, abandoned housing throughout the state. When appropriate the Fund will provide technical assistance, training and consulting services to counties and municipalities regarding the identification, purchase, removal and rehabilitation of properties.
