Governor announces "Jumpstart Express"

Posted:

CORALVILLE (KWWL) -- A streamlined version of the Jumpstart program is on its way to Iowans still waiting on flood relief.

Governor Culver announced the "Jumpstart Express" program at a flood recovery conference in Coralville Wednesday afternoon.

Culver says it will have fewer requirements for applicants to meet.

It will allow them to get up to $25,000 in federal community development block grant money.

Governor Culver says the new program could get money to flood victims in a matter of weeks, rather than months.
