Advantage to Doing Business in Iowa

IEDA’s Certified Site Program is an independent, third-party certification program currently focusing on mega sites – sites that are 250 acres or larger.  In 2013, a large site certification component will be added to include sites that are  below this threshold.

Certification provides developers with more effective marketing and expedites the development schedule by outlining the necessary due diligence.  For more information about IEDA’s Certified Site Program contact Chris Cataldo at chris.cataldo@iowa.gov or call 515.725.3157.
