Louisa schools

LOUISA, Va. (WTVR)–An additional $3.8 million in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds will go to the Louisa County School Board to pay for school construction and other costs following damage caused by the 5.8 magnitude earthquake last August.

Initially FEMA refused to provide disaster aid and Senators Jim Webb (D-VA) and Mark Warner (D-VA) appealed the decision.

U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Jim Webb announced the grant today. In early Feb. 2012, FEMA awarded over $3 million to fund school construction.

Officials plan to build a new Thomas Jefferson Elementary with that $3,247,990 grant. It will be based off the county’s new Moss-Nuchols Elementary’s floor plan and will have 41 classrooms
