The Rebuild Iowa Office announced Tuesday the cities and counties receiving grants from the Iowa Smart Planning Comprehensive Planning Grant Program. My previous blogpost explaining the program in detail is available here. $1 million is being awarded to 38 cities and counties to develop plans that meaningfully incorporate 10 Iowa’s Smart Planning Principles.
Three city-led plans and five county-led plans (marked with ** below) are multi-jurisdictional plans, which received additional consideration in grant scoring.
The Iowa Department of Economic Development will be administering the program now that the awards have been made.
