RSVP in Iowa


The Iowa Association of RSVP Directors (IARSVPD) is comprised of 19 projects that cover 43 counties. Last year, 4,965 Iowa RSVP volunteers addressed community needs in these counties.

RSVP is a federally funded program through the Corporation for National and Community Service, and is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation. RSVP engages adults age 55 years and older in meaningful volunteer opportunities.
