As the waters recede from the record flooding Missouri experienced this spring, residents and businesses have been left with millions of dollars in damages, and Missourians are coming together to recover. The entire Missouri state government is committed to working with the federal and local government agencies, as well as businesses, non-profits, and individual citizens to accelerate the recovery effort. As part of that commitment, this website was created as a single source to help you easily and quickly find the information and disaster-related resources that you need.
