Summary

The Missouri Rural Economic Stimulus Act (MORESA) provides financial incentives for public infrastructure for the development of a renewable fuel production facility or eligible new generation processing entity facility, creating new jobs and agricultural product markets in rural Missouri. The local funding must be, at a minimum, 50% of the amount of the new local Economic Activity Tax (sales and utility tax, etc.), and 100% of the amount of the new real property tax created by the project each year, or a comparable amount of local funds from the municipality or a private non-profit organization. Qualified areas must be a contiguous development area, not encompassing more than 10% of the area of an eligible municipality. Any incorporated Missouri city, town, village or county established on or prior to January 1, 2001, having a population of 99,999 or less is also eligible for the program.
