Three eastern Iowa counties have been issued disaster proclamations by Gov. Terry Branstad.

Recent thunderstorms and flooding in Iowa, Lee, and Muscatine counties caused significant damage to private property. Now residents will be able to use the Iowa Individual Assistance Program to help cover some of the losses incurred.

The program gives up to $5,000 for households that have incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. For example, a family of three cannot make more than $39,060 and qualify for the program.

The grant will help pay for home or car repairs, replacement clothing and food, and the cost of temporary housing. Original receipts are needed and you can find out more about the program here.
