Enrollment is now open for the Mid-Iowa Planning Alliance for Community Development (MIPA), a newly formed organization that will exist to support its members starting April 1, 2022. This webpage seeks to provide all the relevant information for eligible jurisdictions considering MIPA membership.
The Mid-Iowa Planning Alliance for Community Development (MIPA) was created in August 2021 for the purpose of supporting the economic development activities in Boone, Dallas, Jasper, Marion, Polk, Story, and Warren Counties.
Stakeholders from the Mid-Iowa region came together in 2021 to develop the Mid-Iowa Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), which represents the region’s shared vision for economic growth. The intent behind the plan is straight forward: create jobs, diversify the economy, improve living conditions, and improve the region’s resiliency.
