ISU Extension and partners have received a $300,000 grant to educate the public about floodplains, flood risks and basic floodplain management principles, as part of Iowa’s flood mitigation efforts.

“This grant will help city and county officials understand their roles in the floodplain and watershed management process, as well as help the public understand the risks associated with development in floodplains,” said Gary Taylor, ISU Extension planning and development specialist.
