About the Iowa POPP Program

The POPP (Promoting Opportunities for Parents Program) is a joint effort between the Muscatine Community YMCA Family Program Services Fatherhood Initiative and the Iowa Child Support Recovery Unit.  The Muscatine Community YMCA partners with the YMCA of Greater Des Moines for advocacy and financial support to provide this program.

Fathers who attend Dad’s Group and graduate with a 24/7 Dad® Certificate are eligible to participate in this additional service offering child support forgiveness if they owe back child support to the State of Iowa.
