The Commission’s staff prepares and writes grant applications for member entities. The service is provided on a cost-reimbursable basis. Should an application not be funded and the local entity wished to re-file the application, normally there is little to no additional charge. However, in many cases where member entries request Commission assistance, the administrative services are paid for with grant funds.

Grant availability notices are received regularly from the Missouri Community Development Block Grant Program, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (water, sewer, parks and recreation, etc.), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Economic Development Administration, the Delta Regional Authority, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Justice program (for law enforcement projects), the Missouri Department of Conservation, as well as other state and federal agencies.
