McCaskill has said that competitive federal grants and low interest government loans bring federal assistance to Missouri in an honest and fiscally responsible manner. McCaskill—an outspoken opponent of Congressional earmarks—continues to strongly support investments in Missouri’s economy through transparent competitive grants.

McCaskill’s staff has offered similar seminars across the state, including St. Joseph, Cape Girardeau, Springfield, St. Louis, Harrisonville, Kansas City, and Columbia. Interested organizations and individuals can register here.
