Iowa Individual Assistance Program (Disaster Funds) For Flood Affected
Residents of Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard and Winneshiek Counties

Residents affected by the August 23, 2016 storms and resulting flooding may be
eligible to apply for the Iowa Individual Assistance Program to cover losses
experienced due to the flooding.  To qualify, households must be located within
the disaster declaration area, and must meet income guidelines. Northeast
Iowa Community Action Corporation (NEICAC) administers the program in
these affected counties.

The program provides up to a maximum of $5,000 per household to cover
repairs, debris removal, furnace or water heater work, replacement of lost or
spoiled food, and other household losses.  

Households must have an income at or below 200% of the federal poverty
guideline as shown below:

# in Household            Maximum gross yearly income
1                                  $23,760
2                                  $32,040
3                                  $40,320
4                                  $48,600
5                                  $56,880

For each additional household member add $8,320

Because the eligibility process established for this program is complex, affected
residents who may benefit from this assistance are encouraged to contact their
local Northeast Iowa Community Action office to begin the application process.
