The Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) Program is a program in the State of Iowa that invests in the enhancement and protection of Iowa’s natural and cultural resources. REAP is funded from the state's Environment First Fund (Iowa gaming receipts) and the sale of the natural resource license plate. Portions of the funding are awarded as grants to cities, counties, and public/private projects. For more information on the REAP program visit the Iowa DNR website.

Committee Duties

Boone County, along with the other counties in Iowa, has a County Resource Enhancement Committee that is made up of persons interested in the REAP Program. The duties of the county committees are to:

  • sign off on REAP grant applications for all city, county conservation and public/private cost share grant requests
  • prepare a plan for their county showing what they want REAP to accomplish in the future and where they want to see REAP money expended; and
  • to educate county residents on what REAP has done for their county.

Get Involved

Persons interested in serving on the Boone County REAP Committee should contact the chairs of the committee.
