Register to Serve in the Iowa Statewide Emergency Registry of Volunteers
Interested individuals are encouraged to register as a willing and able volunteer through the Iowa Statewide Emergency Registry of Volunteers (i-SERV) – the Iowa Department of Public Health's secure online registry for individuals wishing to volunteer in the event of a large-scale disaster or public health emergency. Volunteers maintain the option to accept or decline any opportunity. Due to the Governor’s Public Health Disaster Emergency Declaration, individuals who volunteer to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic are granted liability immunity for their service. Volunteering for this disaster response will not impact unemployment benefits for those who are receiving them as a result of their clinic temporarily shutting down.
The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) has been tasked with assessing the impact of COVID-19 in Iowa. IDA members can assist in these efforts by completing the survey below regarding how your business is handling the pandemic. The IEDA will utilize information collected from the survey to inform its public policy as a response to the crisis, and determine how to best assist businesses during this time.
