DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Chet Culver says there's more than $11 million available to Iowans in unclaimed federal economic stimulus payments.

He urges eligible Iowans to apply before the Oct. 15 deadline.

Culver says Iowans who owned no taxes and haven't filed returns for the 2007 tax year are still eligible for the payments.

Federal officials say there are more than 4 million low-income seniors and people with disabilities who are missing out on the stimulus program.

In a news release, Culver's office cites figures from the nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. T

he Washington-based organization estimates that about 37,000 eligible Iowans have not filed for the stimulus payments, for a total of about $11.1 million in unclaimed payments.
