ICUF Disaster Grant Program

The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) supports Iowa credit union members who have been displaced from their homes for an extended period of time due to disasters such as tornadoes, flooding or fire. ICUF is able to provide assistance thanks to donor support and based on funds availability.

August 10 Iowa Derecho

We are aware of need coming from areas of Iowa in response to the August 10 derecho storm that produced hurricane-strength winds and damaged homes, businesses and buildings across Iowa.

ICUF's Disaster Grant eligibility is limited to Iowans who are members of an Iowa credit union, are displaced due to significant damage to their home and have critical financial need. Grants are limited to $500 per household. Submission of a grant application does not guarantee funding. If you have critical need due to displacement from your home, please contact your credit union for our grant assistance application. If you are unable to reach your credit union to access a grant application, please email us at
