Missouri State Government Offers Toolkit for Local Goverments Using COVID-19 Relief Funds

The State of Missouri has new guidance for local governments on how to use millions of dollars in federal COVID recovery funds. Brent Palm has details:

They’re called spending toolkits and they can help Missouri cities, counties and tribes identify allowable spending for American Rescue Plan Act funding. There are spending toolkits based on six areas: public health; public safety; economic development; water, wastewater and stormwater; broadband; and behavioral health.

Governor Mike Parson says the first priority is to ensure taxpayer funds are used in the most effective ways possible. The A-R-P-A toolkits are on the Missouri Office of Administration’s website.
