About this grant

Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement is a community organizing group with a 35-year history and a mission to work with Iowans of all ethnic backgrounds, particularly low- and moderate-income families, to provide people with the training and skills to be effective spokespersons for their own issues and concerns. This project will support the grantee’s training efforts, as well as its work to develop new chapters in selected regions of the state and continue building the relationships between members from urban and rural communities.
