IPA Receives APA Grant Money

The Iowa Psychological Association is pleased to announce that we have again been awarded a Small State Operational Grant from APA services in the amount of $10,000 to help fund our lobbyist services. The grant will be used to go toward offsetting the lobbyist expense to help support IPA’s 2022 legislative agenda:

  1. Continue to advocate for parity in telehealth for services provided by psychologists.

  2. Continue to expand the postdoctoral psychologist training program to additional underserved communities, even if they are not located in a federal shortage area.

  3. Continue to work on legislation allowing licensed psychologists to receive reimbursement for psychological services performed by pre-doctoral interns under their direct supervision.

  4. Continue to advocate for and protect the value of psychology licensure and reject delicensing bills.  

  5. Support ongoing implementation of prescribing authority for specially trained psychologists.

  6. Uphold Iowa patient protection and provider qualification requirements for services rendered to Iowans.

  7. Continue to advocate for legislative efforts that highlight promotion of mental health support to underserved populations in the state of Iowa. 

We are grateful for the ongoing support we receive from APA.

Deer Oaks provides clinically effective psychological and psychiatric services to residents of long-term care and assisted living facilities, serving as an integral part of the multidisciplinary care team in order to improve the patients’ overall health, wellbeing, and clinical outcomes.
