Jennifer,  So, I read your question again and maybe have a different answer.  In terms of a stipend for Council Members, Iowa Code allows the Council to pay members a  $50. Stipend to attend Council meetings provided they submit documentation that their annual income is less than 150% of the poverty level.

Hi all.  We are currently looking at how to best move forward with our Consumer Stipend Project.  I was hoping you could help with the following information:


1.)    Does your Council fund a Consumer Stipend Program.  If not, please explain why.

2.)    If your Council does fund a Consumer Stipend Program, please describe the process you use – what things are covered, maximum stipend amount, any limitations, etc.  (you can also send to me as an attachment).


Thanks in advance!
