Reason Why #1: Relentless Legislative Advocacy

Community Providers have transformed from quietly serving the needs of Iowa's most vulnerable, into strong and respected advocates for all Iowans with disabilities. Today, policymakers regularly reach out to IACP for critical information and solutions. The impact of changes within Iowa's Medicaid program became a defining issue in the 2018 midterm election. IACP will to continue to partner with our members to educate lawmakers on the effect that policy decisions have on the lives of Iowans. 

Reason Why #2: Workforce Development

Workforce is the critical issue facing providers at all levels of service delivery. IACP provides many industry-specific opportunities for professional growth.
