Mini-summits are scheduled for:

Wednesday, June 19

Friday, June 21

Spokesperson Brent Engel says the task force normally holds a single event each year.

He says organizers decided to hold multiple events this year to make it easier for people to attend.

Engel says it also allows for the agendas to be tailored to the audiences.

"We can specifically target programs or services that are available in Iowa, in Missouri, in Illinois that affect those states and can specifcally help public officials there," says Engel.

Two of the programs and services that will be discussed are home weatherization and the availability of funding for projects.

Tammye Trevino with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Agency will be the keynote speaker for each event.

Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.
