(Washington D.C.) Five flood ravaged Iowa counties will be able to apply for federal disaster aid now that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has granted Iowa’s appeal.
Residents in Fremont, Mills, Pottawattamie, Harrison and Monona Counties will be eligible for FEMA’s individual Assistance Program, which provides stop-gap aid to homeowners, renters and businesses. FEMA officials say affected residents could receive checks by the end of the month.
Woodbury County was only one of six Iowa counties along the Missouri River that did not receive the federal approval.
