> The Iowa Department for the Blind will be presenting its budget request to the Governor on November 15th from 12:00 to 12:30 pm in the Robert Ray Conference room at the Iowa State Capitol. This presentation will highlight achievements over the past year and outline the priorities for the coming year.
> IDB has requested a state appropriation increase of $79,877. This increase is being requested in order to add an additional Independent Living Teacher. "Our IL teachers have been working really hard to implement a new cluster-based service model" explains IDB Director Emily Wharton. "This new service model is enabling us to more quickly and efficiently help clients get the training and tools they need to remain independent in their homes. Adding another teacher to our team would reduce teacher territories. This would in turn reduce the number of clusters each teacher serves and the wait time between cluster sessions. This would result in clients feeling more confident in  their ability to take care of their homes and remain active in their communities."
> The budget presentation is a public meeting and open to all who wish to attend.
