(This amendment would provide $100,000 each year from the general fund to match funding for a grant awarded December 21, 2017 from the Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority to be used to market tourism initiatives in the Coalfield Counties of Southwest Virginia. Funding for Heart of Appalachia previously came from Department of Mines, Minerals & Energy Mining fines. With the decline of the coal industry, this funding is depleted.)
