RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Thirteen projects across Virginia are in line for more than $8.5 million in grants for sewage treatment and water projects and downtown revitalization.

Other recipients include the town of Appalachia to repair a water line, Mecklenburg County for housing rehabilitation, and Colonial Beach for downtown improvements.
