The Iowa Women’s Foundation, in partnership with Casey’s General Stores, presented grants to nineteen programs across that state that are working to improve the lives of Iowa’s women and girls. Eleven grants were awarded to projects focusing on shattering one of the six barriers to women’s economic self-sufficiency: employment, child care, housing, education/training, transportation and mentoring. Eight grants were presented to programs working to increase the availability of quality affordable child care. $140,000 was awarded to these nineteen programs raising the total granted to over $1,011,000 to 232 projects since the first grants were awarded in 1997 by IWF.
