On June 2, 2018, President Donald Trump approved Missouri’s request for a major disaster declaration (DR-4317) in response to the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds, and flooding during the period of April 28 to May 11, 2017. On April 10, 2018, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated nearly $28 billion in Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG–DR) funds for unmet needs due to the national disasters of 2017.  Of that 28 billion, Missouri will receive an allocation of $58,535,000 in disaster recovery funds to help alleviate the unmet housing, infrastructure, and economic.
