The counties initially approved for public assistance funding are Benton, Boone, Cedar, Clinton, Dallas, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Linn, Marshall, Muscatine, Polk, Poweshiek, Scott, Story and Tama, according to the governor’s office.

The Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa this week received a separate presidential disaster declaration, which made tribe members eligible to apply for the federal Public Assistance Program. Funding for that program may be used for emergency work and the repair or replacement of disaster-damaged facilities, officials said.
