DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Two more counties will have help with flood assistance after Gov. Terry Branstad issued a proclamation of disaster emergency Thursday.

The announcement means state resources will help Winneshiek and Worth counties, both affected by the recent storms and flooding.

In addition, the proclamation activates the Iowa Individual Assistance Program in both counties.

According to Branstad's office, the Iowa Individual Assistance 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 $39,060, for a family of three.

That grant money is available for home or car repairs, replacement of clothing or food, and/or temporary housing.

Original receipts are needed for reimbursements. To apply go to: www.dhs.iowa.gov.
