Seida Accepting IIAG Applications


Sieda Community Action says it is assisting local residents who were affected by last Friday’s storm.

Governor Kim Reynolds issued a disaster proclamation for twelve counties in response to the severe weather occurring on March 31, 2023. With the Governor’s disaster declaration, low-income residents are eligible for up to $5,000 to address issues resulting from the recent damages through the Iowa Individual Assistance Grant program (IIAG) and with the Disaster Case Management Program. The IIAG helps households with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level.

Grants are 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. Sieda Community Action is accepting applications for the Iowa Individual Assistant Grant Program (IIAG) for Keokuk, Mahaska, and Wapello Counties. The grant application and instructions are available on the Iowa Department of Human Services website. Potential applicants have 45 days from the date of the proclamation to submit a claim.

Disaster Case Management is a program to address serious needs to overcome a disaster-related hardship, injury, or adverse condition. Disaster case managers work with clients to create a disaster recovery plan and provide guidance, advice, and referral to obtain a service or resource. There are no income eligibility requirements for this program; it closes 180 days from the date of the governor’s proclamation. For information on the Disaster Case Management Program, contact Sieda or visit
