Disaster Assistance

When the Governor of Iowa declares a disaster emergency in one of IMPACT’s counties, we open the Iowa Individual Disaster Program and Individual Disaster Case Management. Individuals impacted by natural disasters (flooding or severe weather like wind storms and tornadoes) may be eligible for financial assistance to replace or repair damaged property. Case management is available for individuals requiring resource navigation for outstanding needs. Updates will be posted here.

Disaster assistance available for residents of Jasper County


May 8, 2023 -- Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a disaster proclamation for five counties in response to the May 7 severe weather. The proclamation allows state resources to be utilized to respond to and recover from the effects of this severe weather.

Residents of Jasper County may qualify for up to $5,000 of disaster assistance. Grants may be  available for home or car repairs, replacement of clothing or food, and temporary housing expenses. Original receipts are required for those seeking reimbursement for actual expenses related to storm recovery.

The application process is now open and IMPACT Community Action Partnership will process all applications. Potential applicants have 45 days from the date of the proclamation to submit a claim (Deadline June 22, 2023).
