The University of Iowa’s Iowa Initiative for Sustainable Communities (IISC) is pleased to announce the release of its Request for Proposals for community partners. The RFP seeks responses from municipal, county or regional governments, non-profit groups, or a collection of communities with similar characteristics, such as watersheds, economic or cultural districts, or a transportation corridor to partner with IISC during the 2018 – 2019 academic year to complete projects that promote and enhance the quality of life in Iowa communities.
