When disaster strikes, not only is the resilience of Iowans and our communities tested, but homes are often damaged, residents displaced and destruction left behind.
While there is no way to predict when a natural disaster will strike, you can be prepared with the resources available to get housing recovery quickly underway when it happens.
Learn first-hand experiences of successful housing recovery after recent natural disasters, the key resources available to Iowa communities, including Iowa’s new mobile disaster response unit, the disaster recovery functionality of IowaHousingSearch.org and more.
