The Accomack County Board of Supervisors voted to accept  a FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant in the amount of $1,510,062 to elevate eight structures in the Saxis, Sanford areas and one on Plantation Road near Onancock.  The grant requires a local cost share that will be repaid entirely by the individual property owners as a condition of receiving the grant funded services. Administration of the grant will be outsourced to the A-NPDC which has managed similar grants for the County in the past.   Completion of all of the projects outlined in the grant is expected to take 3 years. The motion was passed unanimously.
