Iowa Flood Mitigation Board

 

The Flood Mitigation Board was created by the Iowa General Assembly and signed into law (Iowa Code, Chapter 418) by Governor Branstad in 2012. The board is charged with creating a flood mitigation program for Iowa. This program will allow certain governmental entities to submit flood mitigation projects to the Board for review and possible approval for funding. The funding will come from either sales tax increments or funds appropriated by the General Assembly.

 

The Board itself is composed of four members from the public, six members from state agencies, as well as four ex-officio members from the General Assembly.

 

Flood Recovery Fund

The Iowa Flood Mitigation Board has distributed $36 million from the Flood Recovery Fund for critical recovery and redevelopment projects in communities impacted by the devastating floods of 2019. The Board distributed a $15 million legislative appropriation in September 2019, followed by an additional appropriation of $21 million in February 2020.
