2019 Disaster Recovery - Buy-Outs

Disaster Recovery

2019 Disaster Recovery - Buy-Outs Program

IEDA is working closely with inundated communities and federal funding partners to ensure that those who seek a buyout can receive one.  As noted in the Action Plan, buyouts can be the first necessary step to recovery, and IEDA is working to make that possible by offering both a FEMA Match program and a CDBG-DR buyout program.

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