President Trump approves partial disaster declaration for July tornadoes

Governor Kim Reynolds says President Trump has partially approved her request for a Presidential Disaster Declaration for counties impacted by severe storms and tornadoes on July 19, 2018.

The declaration will make assistance available to public and nonprofit entities in Lee, Marshall, Marion and Van Buren counties under the federal Public Assistance Program. 

This is the second Presidential Disaster Declaration granted to Iowa this year. On Aug. 20, 2018, President Trump granted the governor’s request for Public Assistance Program funding for 30 counties impacted by flooding and severe weather from June 6-July 2, 2018.
