Northeast Iowa Resource Conservation & Development works with partners from throughout the region to explore natural resource based economic development opportunities while at the same time protecting and enhancing natural resources. Our mission is to recognize opportunities and provide leadership to make Northeast Iowa a vibrant, place-based model for the nation!

We love the people, places, and local systems that make Northeast Iowa unique and special. We work on projects that are locally conceived, with partners that are passionate and creative. Our organization uses a bottom-up approach to economic development and natural resource enhancement that involves and empowers citizens rather than a top-down approach that dictates solutions. Northeast Iowa RC&D stands beside partners, first empowering them and recognizing their talents, gifts and knowledge, and then providing our expertise.
