RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine announced Friday, Sept. 11, that Richmond and dozens of other localities across the commonwealth will have more than $35 million in federal funding heading their way.

|City of Richmond||$1,362,346|
|Prince William County||$2,145,011|
