(Des Moines) -- Two more KMAland counties were added to the presidential disaster declaration issued back in March.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds announced Tuesday that residents in Pottawattamie and Shelby counties are now eligible to apply for the federal individual assistance program, which provides aid to eligible homeowners, renters and businesses. Residents in Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Monona and Woodbury counties were included in the Trump Administration's March 23rd declaration for the individual assistance program. The program includes homeowners, renters and businesses grants and low-interest loans to help pay for temporary housing, home repairs and other disaster-related expenses not covered by insurance or other aid programs.

Individuals and business owners who sustained loses in the designated areas can begin applying for federal assistance by registering online at disasterassistance.gov, or by calling 1-800-621-3362.
