Each of Iowa’s 99 counties should have a Resource Enhancement Committee, composed of anyone interested in the REAP program. In recent years, many county committees have become inactive, although there is a current effort to revive and establish them in all counties.
2016 REAP County Chairs
County committees have several important functions. Briefly, these include:
As county committees are reestablished and as their chairpersons are selected, they will be added to a list that can be accessed from this page. If your county is not listed, check with your county conservation board to see if a committee is in the process of being established. Otherwise, check back here from time to time to see if your county is listed.
REAP is a local, grassroots program. It is your local conservation program, guided by your local interests for your local needs. To make REAP work the best for you, your county needs a REAP county committee, and you should be a part of it.
According to the actual REAP law, the duties of the county committee include:
These duties can be easily met without a great deal of effort. Critically important to the success of REAP, the rest of the citizens in your county need to know of the benefits of REAP.
Educating Iowans about REAP, how it works, how it is funded, how they benefit is critical to REAP's support by the Legislature, the Governor, and the four state departments that help operate REAP. REAP county committees are in the best position to carry out this important duty.
Additional information about REAP county committees can be found in the Iowa Code: 455A.20.
