LTAP Resource Weekly

Throughout these uncertain times communication is key. Please consider Iowa LTAP as a resource that is ready to help. We are open for business. Throughout the ongoing uncertainty, we’ll be providing weekly updates with additional resources and/or online opportunities that we hope will be of value to Iowa’s local agencies.

If you’d like to get this information directly from LTAP (as some of the training opportunities may have short advertising time frames) please subscribe to our Iowa LTAP mail list on the right side of this page.

While we have had to cancel or postpone some trainings, we are also still available to answer technical questions and find technical resources for you (please call or email us). Registration for any workshops that are active on the website does not require immediate payment. We will always contact those that have registered for a workshop if there are changes in its status.
