Grants of $1,000 and in-kind support to Iowa nonprofit organizations and local governments to enhance leadership in rural areas. Funding is intended to develop and implement local leadership programs for rural communities. Grantees will also receive mentorship and training.
The Rural Leadership program provides training, mentorship and funding to rural communities and regions initiating leadership programs. Many rural communities have created effective leadership programs, as have various Iowa industries. Leveraging these efforts as examples and partners, this program targets rural communities who want to start a local leadership program and work to engage participants in community leadership roles. Grantees will participate in a two-day bootcamp resulting in a work plan and a one-year mentorship.
Grantees are required to send three citizens to participate in a two-day training, October 26-27 in Newton, Iowa. Day 1 will include participation in the Leadership Exchange event with existing leadership programs across the state. Registration costs for the Exchange are waived for Rural Innovation Leadership Grantees. Day 2 will be a comprehensive bootcamp training for grantees, resulting in a work plan for implementation. Bootcamp attendees should include a diverse representation of community stakeholders and partners.
Grant funds and match dollars must be used for the development and implementation of a community leadership program. Eligible uses include, but are not limited to, travel costs associated with participating in the Exchange and Bootcamp; marketing materials; staff time on leadership program; room rentals; speaker fees; or purchase of equipment/materials.
