The State of Missouri is going on the proactive trying to get a Small Business Administration disaster declaration in advance of, what’s expected to be, a major financial hit for businesses affected by COVID-19.

An economic injury worksheet should be filled out by businesses  affected and submitted to the State emergency Management Agency. More information about the process can be found online at:
