Following the devastating floods and tornadoes which hit the state in the summer of 2008, the Rebuild Iowa Office with its federal, state and local partners has secured more than $4.3 billion in funding to help Iowa recover.
Committed funds are defined as those funds that have been promised to the State of Iowa for disaster recovery but are in various stages of program approval and are not necessary yet available for use or appropriated to specific projects.
Appropriated funds are those that have been designated to specific projects, areas or individuals.
Expended funds are those that have actually been spent on specific needs.

Each month, the Rebuild Iowa Office releases updated charts detailing the movement of disaster relief funds and the progress made in getting these funds out the door.
The document linked to below is the estimated funding from multiple sources for the 2008 Iowa Disasters Recovery Efforts provided by the Rebuild Iowa Office via multiple government and other entities. The amounts shown are estimates based upon the most recent available data and are subject to change. In many cases, accurate county-level funding is not available, so total county figures do not represent a complete picture of available funding. The document will be updated once per month with any new available data.
