Jefferson City, MO –Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick today announced the creation a CARES Act funds information portal.

 

                “As a business owner and a tax-payer, I want to know how the government is allocating money and as State Treasurer, I want Missourians to know that the government is working for them,” Treasurer Fitzpatrick said. “As we begin to assess the newly-released federal guidance on the use of the funding from the CARES Act, we are working to make this process as transparent as possible. My hope is that aggregating this information in one public place will allow Missouri citizens to feel confident that we are working to support our local communities and the state as a whole.”

 

“We established this informal working group to provide recommendations on the best use of federal COVID-19 aid, and it’s important we be as transparent as possible throughout the process,” Governor Mike Parson said. “The CARES Act Funds webpage will give Missourians the opportunity to stay up-to-date on these funds and reassure them that we are working hard to ensure families, communities, and businesses receive the maximum relief available.”

 

On April 10, 2020, Governor Parson formed an informal 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 will study and analyze the federal relief available to Missouri, its citizens, and businesses and identify best practices and procedures to apply that relief.

 

Information about upcoming public meetings, meeting agendas, and additional information about the CARES Act will be posted at treasurer.mo.gov/COVID
