FROM THE DIRECTOR
In 2021, both the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) and the Iowa Finance Authority (IFA) used their resources to make Iowa an even better place to live, work, visit and do business.
IEDA’s portfolio of programs stimulated economic growth by leveraging state and federal community development programs, attracting business investment from around the world, enhancing Iowa’s main streets and promoting Iowa as the choice for people and business.
IFA’s programs put homeownership and farming within reach of Iowans just starting out, allowed communities to move forward with critical infrastructure projects, reinvested funds generated by Iowa Title Guaranty back into the state and made the development of thousands of homes for families possible. In short, making affordable ﬁnancing possible for home and community.
These two approaches culminated in one powerful, positive impact for the people and businesses of Iowa. The IEDA | IFA team is positioned to align our resources to do even more.
I’m proud to lead both organizations and look forward to sharing the impact we’ll continue to make as one team with one goal: to create opportunities for Iowans, communities and businesses to thrive.
