The Missouri Department of Economic Development is seeking comments on a draft State of Missouri Action Plan for using federal disaster funds in St. Charles County. The plan can be found online.
The purpose of the plan is to provide a framework for spending approx. $30 million in federal disaster recovery funds statewide in response to significant flood, tornado, and wind damage in 2019 (Federal Disaster No. DR4451-MO). Congressional approval of DR4451-MO disaster funds mandates that at least 80 percent of these funds be allocated for the three Missouri counties most impacted by the disaster: Cole, Holt, and St. Charles. Based on a needs analysis, the plan proposes that $15,530,460 million of this federal disaster funding be allocated to assist St. Charles County for housing programs with no funding for infrastructure or non-housing projects.
The public comment period is July 30 through Aug. 29, 2020. Written comments may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or by mail to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, P.O. Box 118, Jefferson City, MO 65109.
