2019 Flooding - Disaster Recovery

With heavy rain and historic flooding, rivers and streams throughout Henry County have caused untold damage to our communities. Homes, businesses, roads, bridges and farms have all been impacted, and local resources are nearing exhaustion as rains continue. 
The Henry County OEM, in partnership with our local taxing authorities, will begin processing an application for acceptance into the "Public Assistance (PA) Program".

The Public Assistance (PA) Program provides federal disaster assistance to states, local units of government, and certain private non-profit organizations, for debris removal, emergency protective measures and the permanent restoration or replacement of public facilities as a result of a major disaster or emergency declaration being made by the President.

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) administers the Public Assistance Program as the recipient for the state of Illinois. Eligible organizations for the program are considered as subrecipients and are also called applicants. The program reimburses applicants for at least 75% of eligible costs that were a direct result of the disaster incident. ​Upon a declaration of a major disaster or emergency by the President, applicant briefings are conducted by the IEMA Public Assistance staff for potential applicants in the designated counties. These applicant briefings provide an overview of the program requirements and a hands-on session to complete the required application forms.
