The Flood Center at the University of Iowa will highlight their approach for urban and rural resilience in the next NACD Urban and Community Conservation webinar, which is scheduled at 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern time on October 15, 2020.
The Iowa Flood Center (IFC) led the successful proposal development for the Iowa Watershed Approach for Urban and Rural Resilience (IWA) that brought $96,887,177 to the state of Iowa from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The IWA is working in nine watersheds across the state to help reduce flood impacts, improve water quality, and increase community flood resilience. The program represents a vision for Iowa’s future that voluntarily engages urban and rural stakeholders throughout the watershed to work together to achieve common goals.
The presentation will include a description of the IWA and will discuss innovative tools and resources that are being used to support and carry out program goals.
These popular webinars, held on the third Thursday of each month, are sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation in partnership with the NACD Urban and Community Resource Policy Group. There is no cost to participate, but space is limited. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
