DES MOINES, Iowa - Governor Kim Reynolds issues a disaster proclamation for Winnebago, Worth, Hancock, Cherokee, Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Franklin, Humboldt, Kossuth, O'Brien, Palo Alto, Sioux, and Wright counties.

This proclamation in the wake of Thursday’s severe weather will activate the Iowa Individual Assistance Grant Program and the Disaster Case Management Program for residents of those counties.

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.

Disaster Case Management is a program to address serious needs to overcome a disaster-related hardship, injury or adverse condition. There are no income eligibility requirements for this program.

People in this 14-county region are asked to report damage to help local and state officials better understand the damage sustained. This information will be collected by the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and shared with local emergency management agencies.
