Missouri set to receive millions for security
ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The state will receive $19.5 million from the federal government to strengthen homeland security efforts in urban areas, Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo., said Thursday.
The Missouri State Emergency Management Agency will receive the money as part of a grant for urban areas from the Department of Homeland Security.
At least 80 percent of the money will be used for equipment, training, planning, and management and administration costs in St. Louis and Kansas City.
The other 20 percent of the funds will be used to increase the state's ability to assist urban areas in the prevention, response to and recovery from a terrorist attack.
