Finding Answers Now: 

Unexpected events, such as natural disasters or economic downturns impact margins, but also have an impact far beyond the farm. There is a human side to the economic stress. As Iowans deal with disruptions to their families and communities, these resources provide information to help you cope with concerns about stress and relationships, personal finance, and nutrition and wellness.

 

Recovering from Disasters:

During times of natural disaster, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offers educational resources to reduce the personal impact of natural disasters, working in partnership with the local, state and federal agencies addressing the disaster.  This page is updated with research-based educational resources for specific types of disaster (flooding, drought, storm, etc.) when events occur.
