Commissions, Boards & Councils

The DHR is your partner in building better communities for all who live here. We open doors, find answers, meet challenges and develop resources. We provide a link among agencies, nonprofits and outreach groups within the state, and between federal and state programs. Our approach stems from a Commission, Board and Council structure to ensure the distinct voices of all Iowans are heard.  If you are interested in serving on a commission or board, go to to learn more about the application process.
