POWESHIEK & JASPER COUNTIES ELIGIBLE FOR DERECHO RELIEF

Poweshiek & Jasper Counties eligible for derecho relief

Poweshiek and Jasper County residents who sustained damage from last month’s windstorm are now eligible for assistance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.  Governor Kim Reynolds said in a news release Tuesday that FEMA now says ten additional counties can seek help through the Individual Assistance Program. This program makes money available for costs including housing, personal property replacement and medical expenses. Linn County, which was hardest hit by the August 10 derecho, qualified for the Individual Assistance Program earlier.
