$21.2 Million Generated for Public Education

The Missouri Lottery today sent $21.2 million to help fund public education.  The transfer of $21,279,136 is based on August sales and brings the total to education in FY16 to more than $70.1 million.

Since Missouri Lottery sales started in 1986, the Lottery has generated more than $5.1 billion for the state and public education. Programs funded in FY16 include the A+ Scholarship Program, the Foundation Program and Access Missouri. For complete information about Missouri Lottery proceeds, including maps of proceeds by program and by county, see the “Where the $ Goes” section at MOLottery.com.

In addition to providing funds for public education, the Lottery also benefits the state by collecting state taxes on prizes of more than $600. During the past fiscal year, the Lottery added $8.7 million in state tax collections from prize winnings to the General Revenue Fund.
