DED awards $15.8 million for community development projects statewide

Jefferson City — The Department of Economic Development (DED) announced today it will award more than $15.8 million to 38 recipients through its Community Development Block Grant Program to help communities with infrastructure improvement and other projects across Missouri.

“Strengthening infrastructure and improving our workforce remain my administration’s top priorities,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Whether repairing roads, upgrading facilities, or expanding job training opportunities, these grants allow us to invest in the future of Missouri.”

Funded projects for Fiscal Year 2020 include the construction or repair of roads and bridges, building community facilities, demolishing blighted or vacant structures, and more.

“Expanding and maintaining our state’s infrastructure is essential to economic development,” Department of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon said. “These projects are keeping our communities strong and preparing them for new opportunities in the months and years ahead.”
