FILE - Missouri Democrat Auditor Nicole Galloway

(The Center Square) – Missouri spent $5.49 billion in federal funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and $699 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds during the last 25 months, according to a report from Democrat Auditor Nicole Galloway.

The report states Missouri received $7.92 billion in federal COVID recovery funding between April 2020 and March 2022. The Missouri Constitution requires the auditor to post-audit the accounts of all state agencies, and Galloway began issuing reports on spending of federal COVID funds in June 2020. Galloway published reports for February and March on Thursday.
