Flood victims can apply for up to $4,000 from renter replacement program

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Renters who lost possessions during the floods of 2008 may receive up to $4,000 through the Renters' Personal Possessions Replacement Program.

Applications will be available November 30, 2010 at noon.

Applicants can use the online application found on this site.

Otherwise, people can pick up applications at the following sites:

  • Oakhill-Jackson Neighborhood Resource Center at St. Wenceslaus Church Gym Building, 510 16th Avenue SE
  • Cedar Rapids City Hall, 3851 River Ridge Drive NE
  • Cedar Rapids Neighborhoods Office, 625 First Avenue SE

This program is funded through Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) revenues as it is designed to match federal funds previously received for personal flood recovery.

The program is expected to provide assistance to about 2,000 eligible residents with approximately $8 million from LOST.

Initial payments could begin in January 2011.
