From April of 1993 to May of 1995, Missouri experienced flooding in virtually all areas of the state. This situation resulted in Presidential Declarations on 5 separate occasions. These declarations became the basis for large dollar amounts of assistance for individuals & public entities alike. Hazard mitigation grant program funds also became available on a formula basis for declared states. This report focuses on the process & policies that evolved in Missouri to put these mitigation funds to use in the shortest possible time. This report is useful both as an historic document, & as a blueprintÓ for similar programs should flooding again reach the 1993 & 1995 levels.Stonner, Susie is the author of 'Stemming The Tide Of Flood Losses Stories Of Success From The History Of Missouri's Flood Mitigation Program', published 2000 under ISBN 9780756701246 and ISBN 0756701244.
