I am interested in the stipend hospital-based programs for CRNA students, since I will not be able to work while going to school. Please advice on hospital-based programs in missouri or illinois.

One thing you could do is call the hospitals/groups you are most interested in working for and ask if they have a stipend program, many do. I believe most don't start until you are in your second year, but there are some that will start sooner. Good luck.
On another note, there are downsides to signing on really early in a program. Your grasp of anesthesia types/roles/employment setups is not as sophisticated as it will be when you are closer to graduating. A lot of the people I went to school with had a completely different idea about the type of environment they wanted to work in by the end of the program. Just something to consider.
