Fayette County added to disaster proclamation due to flooding

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Governor Chet Culver has added Fayette County to a disaster proclamation issued due to flash flooding across the state.

Fayette County joins Black hawk, Jasper and Lyon Counties in the proclamation that was issued on Friday.

The move authorizes the implementation of the State Individual Assistance Grant Program, which provides up to $5,000 to flood victims with an income less than 200 percent above the poverty level in those counties.

Application information can be found on the Department of Human Services website at www.dhs.state.ia.us.
