The Iowa Green Veterans AmeriCorps (IGVA) program, based in the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, provides service opportunities to Iowa's returning military veterans who face the greatest barriers to employment find meaningful work. The IGVA will recruit veterans to: 1) assist rural, low income, and elderly residents to identify and implement energy improvements to Iowa's aging housing stock, and 2) engage in disaster recovery efforts and stewardship activities in 33 Iowa state parks.
