PRESENTING: Iowa Department of Health & Human Services

Friday, April 1, 2022

The Iowa Department of Human Services and Iowa Department of Public Health have spent the last year making a plan to combine the two departments into a single agency. In March, they released their plan.  Their goal is to make it easy to access the information, staff, and resources you need without trying to navigate through the system.  They call it a "no wrong door" approach, and they want to make it easy to get what you need.  You will be hearing a lot more about this over the next year, because this big of a change doesn't happen overnight.

  • You can read the plan here.
  • You can see the new agency chart here.

  • It will be easier for people to get services and find answers.
  • The department can have better information to help them make good decisions.
  • Staff will be able to connect people to services seamlessly - without getting lost in "the system."
  • Staff will share a vision for the system, they will all be working toward the "big picture."
