Iowa State receives grant to expand prosperity-building work in rural communities


ISU Extension has been awarded $300,000 to provide continued coaching, assistance and resources to the steering committees guiding the Horizons program in 35 Iowa communities. Horizons is an 18-month leadership development program for rural towns with populations of 5,000 or fewer and with poverty rates of at least 10 percent. Part of the Iowa grant — $76,000 — comes from the Northwest Area Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines.
