The FY2015 fiscal conditions reports for Iowa's 946 communities are now available from the Iowa Government Finance Initiative (IGFI). These reports give cities a snapshot of their fiscal condition using a set of economic, demographic, revenue, and expenditure indicators. The reports for Iowa’s cities are in a standardized format, making it easier for cities to assess their own financial performance and compare themselves with peer cities.

IGFI is an ISU-sponsored outreach initiative to provide local governments in the state of Iowa with a host of services primarily aimed at making communities fiscally stable and promoting overall community and economic development. The educational outreach program is designed to provide an alternate perspective about the financial health and performance of Iowa cities and counties as well as provide an educational component targeted at elected officials and public employees.
