The Department of Economic Development (DED) is seeking public comment on a draft Action Plan outlining how the state will spend $41 million in Community Development Block Grant – Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) funding allocated to Missouri by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These funds represent an opportunity for the state to assist areas impacted by the 2017 floods with the implementation of projects that will help communities mitigate and reduce future disaster risks.
