State Disaster Proclamation Issued for Delaware and Dubuque Counties

Governor Kim Reynolds has issued a state disaster proclamation for Delaware and Dubuque counties.

It’s in response to the severe flash flooding and river flooding that took place Monday and Tuesday.

The governor’s proclamations allow state resources to be utilized to respond to and recover from the flooding. It also activates the Iowa Individual Assistance Grant Program for qualifying residents.

The Individual Assistance Grant Program provides grants of up to $5,000 for households with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level or a maximum annual income of $41,560 for a family of three. Grants are available for home or car repairs, replacement of clothing or food and temporary housing expenses. Original receipts are required for those seeking reimbursement for actual expenses related to storm recovery. Potential applicants have 45 days from the date of the proclamation to submit a claim.
