MISSOURI. (KFVS) - A southeast Missouri university and an education center were each awarded federal funding recently.

According to a release from U.S. Senator Roy Blunt’s office, Southeast Missouri State University Health Sciences Building was awarded $10 million for facilities and equipment in the building.

The Fisher Delta Research, Extension and Education Center was awarded $1.425 million for additional space, along with tools and software, for analysis of crops that are geographically specific to Missouri.

The money was part of the Senate-passed FY2023 government funding bill.

Southeast and Fisher Delta Research were two of 26 total organizations in Missouri to receive funding.

“The resources included in this bill reflect several top priorities for our state, from keeping Missouri colleges and universities on the cutting edge of research and innovation to strengthening critical infrastructure and supporting defense installations,” Senator Blunt said in the release. “The investments we make today will help ensure we are positioned to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities ahead, especially in areas where Missouri is leading the way like biomedical research, agriculture and food science, advanced manufacturing, geospatial intelligence, and much more. I appreciate the partnership of state and local leaders who have been great advocates in this process and I look forward to seeing the positive impact these projects will have in our state.”
