POWESHIEK COUNTY ALLIANCE
The Poweshiek County Alliance began in 2006 as part of the County Endowment Fund Program created by the Iowa State Legislature. This legislation provided that a portion of the state gambling revenue is to be distributed to the Iowa counties that do not have gambling entities. The Poweshiek County Alliance distributes this money each year in the form of grants to non-profit organizations that support the needs of Poweshiek County.
Poweshiek County Alliance Grants:
Poweshiek County Alliance seeks to fund projects that address the needs of Poweshiek County residents. Of particular interest are those providing cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities, as well as ones that enhance the safety, beauty, and economic vitality of the county.
Projects/programs are encouraged that will benefit more than one community in the county, and preference will be given to applications seeking matching funds, or to organizations seeking to collaborate with other local nonprofits.
