CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Seven West Virginia cities have been awarded a total of $118,000 in grants aimed at boosting community health and economic development.

State Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette announced the grants Thursday for projects in Elkins, Fairmont, Kingwood, Parkersburg, Philippi, Shinnston and Sutton.

Among the projects include plans for walking and bike trails, signs and decorative planters along walkways, community gardens, health programs, farmers markets and a farm-to-restaurant program.

Funding for the West Virginia Development Office's Growing Healthy Communities grant program was provided by the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation and the state Department of Health and Human Resources.
