About Hometown Pride

Keep Iowa Beautiful’s Hometown Pride program was developed in 2012, as an effort to assist and improve communities. The program walks alongside qualifying Iowa communities and coaches them to a more vibrant future.

This effort enhances community cultural and economic vitality – strengthening the community and increasing its chance for not simply survival, but growth with increased pride.

Hometown Pride Coaching

The Hometown Pride program offers leadership training, youth service learning and a variety of educational components, tools, and solutions for community development. Qualifying communities receive five years of long-term technical and professional coaching assistance. During that time, our trained coaches work to deliver a sense of stability and empowerment. When implemented, communities are rewarded with sustainable plans and programs.
