KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — As part of the federal Emergency Capital Investment Program, President Joe Biden gave $187 million to Missouri banks, credit unions and holding companies.

A Wednesday release from the U.S. Department of Treasury announced that $75,000,000 has been given to Central Bancshares of Kansas City; $1,000,000 has been given to the Holy Rosary Credit Union in Kansas City; $99,000,000 has been given to Ozarks Hertiage Financial Group in Gainesville and $12,041,000 has been given to Star Bancshares in Bolivar.
