What is Embrace Iowa? It’s a partnership with Community Action Agencies, Iowa Community Action Association, The Des Moines Register, and donors. Funds (up to $750 per household) are used to meet needs unable to be met by other programs or to remove barriers to an improved life. Preference will be given to those who have not received funds from the program before and are below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.
