Iowa Medicaid Program
Managing Agency Iowa http://www.iowa.gov/state/main/index.html

Program Description
Medicaid is a program that pays for covered medical and health care costs of people who qualify. The Medicaid program is funded by Federal, state, and local governments and is managed by the Iowa Department of Human Services. A wide range of medical and health care services is available through the Medicaid program. These services are covered only if they are medically necessary. Medicaid members have free choice of a doctor, dentist, pharmacy, and other providers of services. However, in many counties, some people covered by Medicaid are required to get certain medical services through a managed health care provider (either a health maintenance organization (HMO) or a Medi PASS provider or Iowa Wellness Plan provider). These people have the opportunity to select a provider, however, if they do not select one they will be assigned to a provider. A provider that chooses to participate in the Medicaid program must accept the payments that Medicaid makes and make no additional charges to the member for services covered under the program. However, some services covered by Medicaid do require a small co-payment be paid.

General Program Requirements
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Iowa, a U.S. national, citizen or permanent resident in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. .

Sponsors must be organizations that are fully capable of managing a food service program. To be a sponsor, you must follow regulations and be responsible, financially and administratively, for running your program.

Iowa Weatherization Assistance Program
Managing Agency Iowa http://www.iowa.gov/state/main/index.html

Program Description
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is a Federal grant program established to help reduce the heating and cooling costs for low income persons, particularly the elderly, disabled, and children, by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. The installation of energy efficiency measures for each dwelling is based on a computerized energy audit which determines the cost effectiveness of each measure. Energy efficiency measures include high-density wall and attic insulation and blower door – guided infiltration reduction. Because the weatherization procedures result in “tightening” homes, indoor air quality and other client health and safety issues are also addressed. Health and safety measures include safety checks of all combustion appliances. Besides the obvious benefit of conserving energy, the program also mitigates certain health and safety problems in the client’s homes, maintains affordable housing for low-income persons, reduces utility arrearages, and reduces environmental pollution.

General Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Iowa.

In order to qualify, you must also have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:
Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $22,340
2 $30,260
3 $38,180
4 $46,100
5 $54,020
6 $61,940
7 $69,860
8 $77,780
*For households with more than eight people, add $7,920 per additional person.

If you receive Supplemental Security Income or Aid to Families with Dependent Children, you are automatically eligible to receive weatherization services.
