[ARCHIVED] Red Cross Provides Financial Assistance to Eligible Households

The Red Cross will provide financial assistance to eligible households whose residences sustained major damage or were destroyed by the Iowa derecho on August 10. Residents impacted are encouraged to call 1-800-REDCROSS, and select prompt 4.

Major damage is indicated by significant structural damage to a residence that requires extensive repairs, including substantial failure of the roof, walls or foundation. A destroyed residence is one that is a total loss or with damage so extensive that repair is not feasible.

Financial assistance will allow people to make their own decisions and prioritize what they need to start recovering. Funds can help families replace clothes or food, offset transportation costs or support other immediate needs.

This financial support is in addition to the other services the Red Cross continues to provide, including cleaning supplies, food, health and mental health support, and spiritual care.
