Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management

The department’s website is a central resource for information about flooding prevention, preparation, and recovery. This includes an overview of state and local resources, including financial aid, that may be available to help you with your recovery from flooding. The website also directs you to the 99 county coordinators who manage the disaster recovery efforts of local government and volunteers. These efforts include sandbagging, traffic control, cleanup, and sheltering.

The department also works with states, territories, tribal governments, and communities to take advantage of funding provided by federal Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs. These programs provide funding to pay for measures that reduce the community’s risk of flooding.
