McCaskill Announces Extension for Joplin Housing Loan Program
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill announced today that the United States Department of Agriculture population waiver for rural development loan guarantees on single family housing for Joplin and Jasper Counties has been extended through September 2014. The extension means Joplin tornado survivors can access the same lower-interest loans that people in communities with lower populations get.
The total amount of federal resources that have been provided for tornado recovery in Joplin now exceeds $350 million.
