Iowa HHS Invites You to Attend IA SAIL Town Halls

Governor Kim Reynolds ★ Lt. Governor Adam Gregg    

Gov. Reynolds Issues Disaster Proclamation for Five Counties in Response to Mississippi River Flooding  
DES MOINES – Today, Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a disaster proclamation for five counties in response to the Mississippi River flooding. The governor's proclamation activates the Iowa Individual Assistance Grant Program and the Disaster Case Management Program for Clayton, Clinton, Dubuque, Jackson, and Scott counties. 

The Iowa Individual Assistance Grant Program provides grants of up to $5,000 for 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. The grant application and instructions are available on the Iowa Department of Human Services website at Potential applicants have 45 days from the date of the proclamation to submit a claim. 

The Disaster Case Management Program addresses serious needs related to disaster-related hardship, injury, or adverse conditions. 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 your local community action association or visit  

The governor issued a disaster proclamation on April 24 for Allamakee, Clayton, Clinton, Des Moines, Dubuque, Jackson, Lee, Louisa, Muscatine, and Scott counties to allow state resources to be utilized to respond to and recover from the effects of Mississippi River flooding.

The Iowa Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) invites you to attend town halls for the Iowa Solutions for Aging with Independence and Longevity (IA SAIL) project as we work towards building a multisector plan on aging within the state.  IA SAIL ensures that you and your loved ones have the services you need, when you need them, regardless of your age and abilities.

The town hall sessions are open to the public and are an opportunity to share insights, give suggestions and discuss concerns as we work to meet the needs of Iowans in all phases of the aging process.

Below are the IA SAIL town hall dates. Please attend the time that works best for you!
