Gov. Kim Reynolds on Monday, July 1, received word Iowans impacted by flooding and severe weather now have until July 16 to apply for federal recovery assistance.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency granted Iowa's request for an extension of the registration deadline for the federal Individual Assistance Program. This will give those impacted by flooding and severe weather between March 12 and June 15 additional time to register.

Homeowners and renters in nine counties now have until July 16 to apply for Individual Assistance. The nine counties are Fremont, Harrison, Louisa, Mills, Monona, Pottawattamie, Scott, Shelby, and Woodbury. The deadline had been July 1.

The deadline for residents and businesses to apply for Small Business Administration loans has also been extended to July 16.     

To register for FEMA assistance, visit or call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362.
