Capitol Day Grants

Friday, December 22, 2017

If you would like to meet with your legislators in Des Moines during the upcoming legislative session, consider applying for ID Action’s Capitol Day Grants. ID Action will provide eight (8) 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.

If your group is selected, you will attend an advocacy training and meet with your legislators. You may also watch a floor debate if time allows, attend a committee meeting, meet with other state agencies and meet with ID Action or Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council staff.

In order to apply, your group must include 10 to 20 people with a disability and be advocating for disability-related issues. To apply, visit http://www.idaction.org/get-involved/capitol-days/.
