36 spay and neuter projects to receive WVDA grants

Out of 60 applicants vying for grant funding from the West Virginia Department of Agriculture (WVDA), 36 will splint more than $1 million.  Seven of those are in the south eastern part of the state.

The grant awards are for the West Virginia Spay and Neuter Assistance Program.  It was established in 2013, but not funded until the legislature passed a bill in 2017.  The purpose of the grants is to offer spay and neuter services at the county level.

" I am extremely pleased with the process my staff and volunteers took in determining award recipients," Agriculture Commissioner Kent Leonhardt.  "We brought in people outside the department to help review and rank applicants.  This is all a part of our effort to ensure good, transparent government."
