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 for Boone county residents:

June 2, 2022 -- Households in Boone county experiencing losses of personal property or having structural damage to their personal residence as a result of recent severe weather may apply for assistance. Boone County residents may apply for assistance by contacting IMPACT by email or telephone:

Disaster case management:

March 2022 -- IMPACT is providing Disaster Case Management for those affected by the tornadoes in March of 2022. There may be local resources available for you, whether or not you applied/received other assistance. A trained, compassionate disaster advocate will work one-on-one with you (regardless of your income) to:

  • Be your advocate

  • Answer questions about recovery

  • Develop a plan to address needs

  • Connect you with community resources

  • Determine what assistance may be available (some resources may change over time as recovery progresses)
