Federal aid is on the way to cover Missouri's winter storm costs.
Wrap: President Obama signed a declaration declaring Missouri's February snow storm a major disaster.
The declaration will make federal funding available to local governments to help finance costs within the 59 counties hit by the storm.
This comes after President Obama approved $64 million in aid to cover the costs incurred during Illinois' winter storm.
The amount of aid Missouri will receive is unknown, though their original request was for $14 million.
