2019 CDBG-DR Flood Recovery

Disaster Recovery

Planning for the Long-Term Recovery

Through the assistance of a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, IEDA partnered with a planning firm to create a long-term regional redevelopment strategy for flood impacted areas in Mills and Fremont counties. This comprehensive land use study assesses future land use, land management, infrastructure and flood control activities in the City of Pacific Junction, the City of Hamburg and the Interstate 29/Iowa Highway 2 interchange.

Program Guidelines

These programs are designed to assist Iowans and their communities with disaster recovery from the 2019 Iowa Floods. These programs are supported by U. S. Housing and Urban Development federal dollars through a Disaster Recovery Grant to the State of Iowa.  The State has established three primary funding programs with these funds, designed to meet remaining unmet needs in a thoughtful and resilient manner:

New Housing Workshops

Action Plan

At this time, only counties designated as Most Impacted and Distressed by HUD qualify for these programs. As recovery progresses, programs may be expanded to other areas, but for now only units of local government located in the following counties are eligible to apply:

  • Fremont County
  • Harrison County
  • Mills County

All applications are located in Only local Councils of Government (COG) or IEDA determined qualified consultants can apply through on behalf of the unit of local government applicant. Please coordinate with your local COG or procured consultant to apply.
