Mississippi State Expenditure Plan

On April 13, 2017, the Council Chair, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), approved the Mississippi’s State Expenditure Plan (SEP) based on the Council Acting Executive Director’s approval recommendation. The Council has found the Mississippi SEP is complete and meets all requirements contained in the RESTORE Act, the Department of the Treasury’s implementing regulations (31 C.F.R. Part 34), and the Council’s SEP Guidelines. USDA provided Mississippi with a letter of approval, reiterating the Council’s commitment to ensuring an efficient and effective process for funding the activities in the Mississippi SEP. The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality issued a press release providing details about the projects outlined in the Mississippi SEP.
