Iowa Partnership for Success Funds: Capacity

The SAFE Coalition is currently working on the Capacity phase of the IPFS (Iowa Partnership for Success) Grant. This requires the completion of a key document, the Capacity Workbook.

The Capacity Workbook requires the collection of information about the providers of prevention services in Van Buren County and how they do or do not work together.  Coalition members are working to collect the required information to complete this document and identify the work being done in the community related to underage drinking and underage binge drinking.  During this process the coalition also hopes to connect with other partners in the community to help build the capacity of the coalition to address underage drinking and underage binge drinking in Van Buren County. 

The next steps for the IPFS Grant will be to use the data collected during the assessment phase and the information from the capacity phase to identify local conditions and plan strategies to make community change.  For more information on the Partnership for Success funds you may contact the coalition office at 319-293-6412 or via email at
