The Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB) operating budget for Fiscal Year 2017 will be $2,298,358. This amount is the equivalent of what we received in Fiscal Year 2016. A budget increase for the IDB was not recommended by the governor.
ID Action will provide eight (8) Capitol Day grants up to $500 each for advocacy training and support to local advocacy groups who are interested in meeting with their legislators at the Iowa State Capitol and advocating on behalf of disability related issues. Get the details!
