Grant Applications and Administration

Grant Applications and Administration

By assisting with grant applications, UERPC helps local governments secure grants and loans from state and federal agencies.  These funds are used to finance priority community improvements and are typically involved in the construction and/or repair of public facilities.  In addition, UERPC often assists local communities by administering grants and loans such as Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), Economic Development Set Aside (CDBG/EDSA), Public Facility Set Aside (CDBG/PFSA), Revitalize Iowa's Sound Economy (IDOT-RISE) and USDA - Rural Development programs.  Since 1972, the commission has received over $225 million in Federal and State grants for the Region.


Special Projects

UERPC provides staff assistance in special project areas such as preparing and updating municipal codes, preparing zoning ordinance updates, Urban Revitalization Districts, TIF Districts, programming city capital improvement projects and preparing and updating city maps, including sewer/water, zoning and new subdivisions.


Information Resource

UERPC acts as a service agency and regional resource for our members by conducting workshops and intergovernmental reviews, supplying data information and maintaining a large collection of census data and area-wide maps.
