Gov. Kim Reynolds has received notification that Clinton County is now eligible for FEMA's Individual Assistance Program for the Aug. 10, 2020, derecho.
Clinton County was included in the governor's August Presidential Disaster Declaration request for the Individual Assistance Program but was not initially approved. An appeal filed with FEMA by the State of Iowa was granted on Oct. 5. Hardin, Johnson, and Jones counties were also included in the appeal but the program was not granted for these counties because FEMA determined the impact was not of the severity and magnitude to warrant designation for the program.
