Jefferson City, MO – Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick today held a conference call with more than 170 Missouri county government leaders and the U.S. Treasury Department to provide guidance and best practices to local governments to effectively use their CARES Act funding. Office of Administration Director of Accounting Stacy Neal and Department of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon also participated.


 Since receiving their funds in May, many local governments have requested further guidance on qualified COVID expenditures. Today’s conference call was an opportunity for them to hear directly from the federal government.


“I know that our local governments want to serve their constituents well by using the CARES Act funding to help their counties and municipalities respond to COVID-19 and recover from its impact in a responsible way,” Treasurer Fitzpatrick said. “I am grateful to the U.S. Treasury Department for taking the time to answer questions from our local governments. I will continue to support our counties and municipalities as they rebound from the COVID-19 health emergency.”


                On April 10, 2020, Governor Parson formed a working group, led by Treasurer Fitzpatrick, to make recommendations for the use of federal funding provided for COVID-19-related costs under the CARES Act. This advisory body is studying and analyzing the federal relief available to Missouri, its citizens, and businesses, and identifying best practices and procedures to apply that relief.
