UERPC Financial Report

UERPC Financial Report

UERPC has become recognized as an ideal vehicle for addressing issues that require a regional perspective, obtaining over $241 million in grant funds since its establishment in November of 1972.  More specifically, this fiscal year UERPC obtained over $5.0 million from grant funds for our various counties and communities.

At the time that this financial statement was prepared and audited, there have been several known and unknown factors that have significantly affected or can affect the financial health of the Commission in the future: Federal and State budgets continue to waiver and provide stability to the UERPC budget; the financial department has seen some major changes with staff and programming this past fiscal year. The Commission did purchase Sage 50 to assist with the financial process. Sage 50 will provide better efficiencies, better management on a real time basis. Portions of the Region’s manufacturing sectors are noting a downturn causing large amounts of layoffs. However, other counties are experiencing high levels of expansions and job creation. The Commission does operate six revolving loan funds. At this time, the Commission is noting a few borrowers requesting an alternative payment schedule. The Commission is positioned to assist with those alternative payments schedule if RLF Board approved. However, most borrowers are still at the normal payment conditions. The economy of Northeast Iowa will impact the borrowers’ ability to repay the loan.

Diversity will be the key for UERPC’s success in the upcoming years.  UERPC management team sought out several new projects that were new to the Council of Government (COG) world and to UERPC.   The diversity of the new projects has allowed UERPC to increase financial security and independence from state and federal program inconsistencies.

UERPC has two locations to better serve their clients.  In the Postville office, Northeast Iowa Community Action has joined the partnership and holds an office.  UERPC continues its’ partnerships within the Decorah location with IowaWorks, Hawkeye Community College, Goodwill, and ISU Extension. Within the IowaWorks center, UERPC is just one partner in the one-stop shop for residents within the region with workforce needs.
