The Iowa Green Veterans AmeriCorps (IGVA) program is having great success connecting veterans to environmental employment across the state.
Currently, there are 10 full-time veterans in the program. They are working with Habitat for Humanity in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids to improve energy efficiency in residents’ homes.
IGVA will add an additional 20 veterans to work part-time starting this spring. The group will concentrate on improving Iowa’s state parks.
