Missouri received approximately $2.4 billion in federal funding under the CARES Act, including $173.5 million for St. Louis County and $122.7 million for Jackson County, according to the governor’s office.  Twenty-five percent of the remaining share goes to Missouri counties based on population.

An information working group, led by State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick, was formed to help make recommendations on the best use of the federal funding, according to a news release.

The Treasurer’s Office has created a web page to provide updates on the working group and the CARES Act funds.
