CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The clock is ticking for West Virginia localities seeking a federal assist during hard times.

The deadline is Friday to apply for so-called hazard mitigation grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

State officials say several funding opportunities are available for the current year. They include funding from the grant program to soften the economic blow of a disaster.

Flood mitigation assistance is also available.

The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management says it will help communities prepare one or more basic applications.
