Iowa Individual Disaster Assistance Grant Program (IIAGP)

IIAGP offers grants to families whose household’s annual income is at 200% or less of the federal poverty level. 

Chart titled "2024 national poverty guidelines," showing income levels for household sizes 1 to 8, ranging from $30,120 for one person to $105,440 for eight people.

Per Iowa Code, for disasters declared after July 1, 2024, each eligible household may receive up to $7,000 for items that qualify under one of the four categories: temporary housing, food assistance, personal property, and home repair. Eligible households who were impacted by disasters declared before July 1, 2024, may receive up to $5,000 for these items. Supporting documentation is required.

The IIAGP is activated when the Governor issues a disaster proclamation turning on IIAGP for the affected counties. Applicants have 45 days from the date of the Governor’s proclamation to apply. Check the Counties with Active Proclamations section of the disaster assistance main page for IIAGP deadlines. If a presidential disaster declaration for Individual Assistance is issued for a county for the same event, the IIAGP is automatically turned off for that county and the federal program goes into effect.

IIAGP Application

Qualifying households may receive up to $7,000 to help with disaster recovery.

The application may also be downloaded in PDF format and printed. Applications can then be turned in to a local Community Action Agency. 

Go to iowacommunityaction.org/find-an-agency to find your local agency.

Disaster Case Advocacy (DCA)

DCA is a supportive program involving a partnership between a disaster-impacted household and a disaster case advocate. Disaster case advocates walk beside households through the disaster recovery process. They serve as a primary point of contact assisting households in coordinating necessary services and resources to address the household’s complex disaster recovery needs. In this partnership, advocates and households assess the family’s disaster-related unmet needs, build a recovery plan, and access available resources.

Disaster-related unmet needs are those things households need to recover from the disaster. Examples may include navigating through insurance, financial resources, and application processes; locating housing options, advocating and supporting through the rebuild process; may also include basic and immediate needs such as food, clothing, shelter or first aid, and long term needs such as financial, physical, emotional or spiritual well-being.

You may also contact your local Community Action Agency directly to learn more about Disaster Case Advocacy. Go to iowacommunityaction.org/find-an-agency to find your local agency.


DCA - Eligible Households

  • No income restrictions
  • Household’s primary and occupied residence is in the county indicated in the disaster proclamation
  • Household has disaster related needs that represent a burden that the family is unable to resolve
  • Household members are citizens or legally residing in the United States


DCA - Benefits

  • No cost
  • Single point of contact to connect with resources
  • Advocate for the household’s needs, removing barriers to recovery
  • Household plays a lead role in their disaster recovery
     
DCA - What to Do. Request a disaster case advocate.  Partner to assess your disaster-related unmet needs.  Develop a Disaster Recovery Plan.  Connect with resources and accomplish the plan goals.
