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

Gov. Kim Reynolds approved legislation that appropriated $15 million info Iowa's Flood Recovery Fund. This fund is under the control of the Iowa Flood Mitigation Board and is to be used for purposes of flood response, recovery, or mitigation activities within counties designated under the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Individual Assistance Program for the March 12-June 15, 2019, Presidential Disaster Declaration.
