POLK COUNTY, Iowa  --  FEMA is expected to tour Polk County this week to assess flood damage, which could add federal dollars to the help for flood victims.

On Tuesday, Polk County leaders approved a program to help low-income homeowners. The program would provide money to replace water heaters, furnaces, and electrical panels damaged from flooding. To qualify, homeowners must fall below 80% of the median income level, which works out to about $45,000 per year.

The application is expected to be available by Thursday.
