HUD provides $45 million grant to Joplin


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has $300 million allotted nationwide for disasters, and is giving Joplin $45 million of that to help with the disaster recovery.

The check was presented during a news conference on Thursday.

The City of Joplin applied for the Community Development Block Grant for Disaster Recovery, outlining a spending budget:


  • $31 million for housing
  • $6.5 million for infrastructure
  • $5 million for economic development


"We think with the assistance of these funds and projects the master builders are talking about, we hope to make Joplin bigger and better than it was prior to the storm," says City Manager Mark Rohr.
