On December 27, Missouri Governor Mike Parson extended the deadline to counties until June 30, from the original date of December 31, 2020, for distributing CARES Act funds. Counties are required to provide the state with their individual spending data by January 31 to receive the extension, according to the Governor’s order. When President Trump signed the latest COVID-19 Emergency Relief Package into law in December, one of the bill’s provisions was extending the date that CARES Act funds could be used on eligible costs by one year.
