About the Iowa Association of Community Providers

IACP supports Iowa community providers so they can fully support Iowans in need of behavior 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 to lead more productive and fulfilling lives. This is reflected in IACP’s organization mission and vision.

  • Complete access to affordable, seamless services for all Iowans
  • Make competitive, integrated, community-based employment available for all Iowans
  • Encourage state investment in community-based services, NOT in institutional care
