Senators Kit Bond and Jim Talent (R-Mo.) today announced that the President has approved Governor Matt Blunt�s request for a major disaster declaration for the City of St. Louis for the devastating storms that occurred July 19-21.
"Today�s disaster declaration is an important step in getting St. Louis much-needed assistance," said Senator Kit Bond. "Federal funds will play a critical role in this community�s recovery."
"This announcement is good news for Missourians who were hurt by the storm," said Sen. Talent.

This funding will help provide much needed additional assistance to help our people recover."
This declaration for Public Assistance provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities.
