Washington, DC – The federal government is sending $19.5 million to St. Louis and Kansas City to help homeland security efforts.

The state's Emergency Management Agency received the money from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

At least 80% will be used for equipment, training, planning, and management and administration costs in St. Louis and Kansas City.

The other 20% will be used to increase the state's ability to help urban areas in the prevention, response to and recovery from a terrorist attack.
