CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia is getting more than $526,000 in federal funds to help residents with emergencies that are not caused by disasters.

The money is for food, shelter and supportive services.

The appropriation was announced by U.S. Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin, and Rep. Nick Rahall.

Manchin says the money is intended to help residents rise above challenging circumstances and get back on their feet.

The funding comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's emergency Food and Shelter Program.
