About the Iowa Association of Community Providers


IACP supports Iowa community providers so they can fully support Iowans in need of mental health and disability services. More than 130 providers across the state look to IACP as a trusted resource in their work to help those they serve lead more productive and fulfilling lives. This is reflected in IACP’s organization mission and vision.
