DES MOINES, Iowa – Governor Kim Reynolds has issued a disaster proclamation for Kossuth and eight other counties.

In response to flooding and severe weather that began June 14, this proclamation activates the Iowa Individual Assistance Grant Program for qualifying residents of Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Kossuth, Lyon, Osceola, Palo Alto, Scott and Story counties. This 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.

Residents have 45 days from Thursday to submit a claim.

People are also being asked to report storm or flood damage to help local and state officials better understand the situation. This information will be collected by the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and shared with local emergency management agencies.
