IHPA has embarked on a new venture to assist the flood ravaged community of Cedar Rapids in developing a sustainable architectural salvage and recycling operation. The operation was started with the guidance of Roger Gwinup of Iowa City, who for years has worked with Iowa communities to establish similar operations. Assistance was provided by the new AmeriCorps – Green Team members from Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, and Waterloo, as well as many private citizens of Cedar Rapids.
