Iowa Workforce Development (IWD) and Strengthen Rural Iowa (SRI) Partner
to Offer Workforce Services Outreach in Burlington

DES MOINES – Iowa Workforce Development has partnered with the Strengthen Rural Iowa, a federal partnership, to locate an Iowa Career Access Point (ICAP) in Burlington. The access point creates an additional entrance point into the workforce system for individuals at familiar community locations.

“Workforce services are needed now more than ever,” stated Elisabeth Buck, Iowa Workforce Development Director. “Utilizing these unique partnerships allows us to bring our services to more Iowans.”

By utilizing current community service providers and volunteers trained within the ICAP system, Iowa is able to provide cohesive workforce services to a broader audience within local communities through familiar community locations. Community members will receive assistance with job search techniques, résumé development, filing unemployment claims and other workforce related services.

The Burlington ICAP is within the Zion United Church of Christ “Bridging the Gap” location at 412 North Fifth Street. Services will be available Monday through Friday, 9:30-11:30 AM; Monday through Tuesday, 5:00-7:00 PM; and by appointment. A grand opening celebration will be held later in October.
