How to Start a REAP County Committee
If you notice that your county does not have a contact for a county committee (view list), check with your county conservation board, or board of supervisors to see if they know of an existing REAP county committee, and if they know who the contact is. If there is one, please contact the REAP Coordinator so it can be added to the list.
If you want to be a part of an existing county committee, simply contact the listed person to find out when the next meeting is, and ask if you can be of help.
If there is no existing county committee, and you want to help begin one, explain this to the office of your county board of supervisors. You can mention that your county should have such a committee, according to the Code of Iowa, 455A.20. They should be agreeable to work with you in your endeavor. Why would they be agreeable, you might ask? For one thing, "money" -- lots of it -- is one of the reasons.
Since 1990, REAP has spent $41.4 million on just city and county conservation board grants throughout Iowa. Those grants have required REAP county committee signatures before they could be funded. If a city in your county, or your county conservation board is seeking a grant, they must have a REAP county committee review and sign it. But, there are other good reasons for a REAP county committee; see county committee duties.
