The Iowa Rural Development Council (IRDC) has a long history of bringing together rural partners, both public and private, to advance the interests of rural Iowa. The Council has a singular focus of helping rural partners collaborate, share information, conduct research, spotlight best practices, and serve and support Iowa’s rural communities.

The Council does not receive any state and federal taxpayer support and relies entirely on event sponsorships, fees, and voluntary contributions.

Your support will help underwrite staffing, and most importantly, planning and programs, to help meet the needs of rural citizens and the communities where they live and work.
