Background: Iowa has actively been working to address the performance of the governmental public health system since 2004. In 2014, a coalition of partner organizations received the Gaining Ground grant from the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI). Gaining Ground is a two-year effort that seeks to catalyze national accreditation readiness and performance and quality improvement among local, tribal and state health departments in Iowa. The Iowa Public Health Association (IPHA) serves as the fiscal agent for this grant project.

Coalition partners include:
Iowa Counties Public Health Association
Iowa Department of Public Health
Iowa Environmental Health Association
Iowa Public Health Association
Public Health Advisory Council
Midwestern Public Health Training Center
