KSDK - In a statement issued Tuesday, the Missouri Department of Education said it anticipates that it will continue to have access to most federal funds.
Here's the full statement:
"The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is closely monitoring the situation in Washington, D.C. and currently anticipates it will continue to have access to most Federal funds now. It is believed that routine automated grants-related transactions, including the drawdown of funds will continue. Requests that require action by U.S. Department employees, such as grantees on route payment flags, however, would not be completed during the shutdown. The Missouri Department of Education will test and verify that it does have access that enables continued routine drawdowns on Wednesday morning and notify school districts accordingly."
