President Trump approving Governor Mike Parson’s request for a federal major disaster declaration in the State of Missouri.

The approval allows FEMA’s Public Assistance Program to be activated in order to reimburse eligible expenditures made by local governments, nonprofits and the state in order to provide emergency protective measures through first responders and those on the front lines of the Coronavirus.

Governor Parson’s request for federal disaster unemployment assistance and crisis counseling is still under review.
