RELEASE: Blunt announces $100 Million in grant funding for Missouri disaster recovery and mitigation efforts

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that Missouri will receive a total of more than $100 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding to support ongoing disaster relief efforts in areas impacted by historic flooding, and to strengthen critical infrastructure to reduce the potential for future damages.

“Many communities in Missouri still haven’t fully recovered from the costly flood-related damage they’ve experienced over the last couple of years,” said Blunt. “This grant funding provides much-needed resources to help communities rebuild and strengthen their infrastructure to protect against future damages. I will continue to support Community Development Block Grants, which have been critically important for our state.”

Of the more than $100 million announced today, $58.5 million will be used to continue disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts following historic flooding in recent years, and nearly $41.6 million will be used to help communities prepare and mitigate against future damages.

This CDBG grant funding was included in the emergency funding measure that was signed into law in February as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act. Blunt has advocated for the CDBG program, which played a large part in recovery efforts following the 2011 Joplin tornado.

Additional information on projects eligible for CDBG funding is expected to be released next week.
