overview

We have an exciting, two days planned where you’ll learn how communities in Western Iowa and Siouxland are seeking to use the historic federal funding opportunities flowing into the region, as well as some of the opportunities and challenges communities are encountering in accessing funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Inflation Reduction Act, and CHIPS and Science Act.

Our program includes opportunities to hear from community members and stakeholders about how they are approaching the funding opportunities and what they believe their communities need, as well as some of the concerns they have about the future. This hands-on event will facilitate direct engagement with representatives from federal, state, and local agencies, government representatives, as well as private, non-profit, and higher education sector stakeholders.
