Iowa's State Service Plan Input Form

Volunteer Iowa (Iowa Commission on Volunteer Service or ICVS) is beginning work on our next State Service Plan.  Every three years Volunteer Iowa is charged with drafting this plan, which serves as a blueprint for identifying state priorities, themes, and areas of emphasis for Iowa national service and volunteer programs.  This survey serves as a precursor to public listening sessions that will be held in July and August in three communities across the state, with an additional virtual listening session for those who cannot participate in person.  Your feedback in this survey is welcome whether or not you are able to participate in the listening sessions, but we'll hope you will be able to do both.

A copy of the current State Service Plan is available on the Volunteer Iowa website: 2019-2022 Iowa State Service Plan. You may wish to review the current plan before continuing with this survey instrument.  We value input from the public, from existing partners, and any organization that is invested in service in Iowa.
