Iowa Government Finance Initiative (IGFI) has released the fiscal year ending (FYE) 2017 Annual Fiscal Conditions reports for all Iowa cities.
Extension CED’s Iowa Government Finance Initiative (IGFI) released the Fiscal Year Ending (FYE) 2015 Annual Fiscal Conditions reports for Iowa’s 99 counties.
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.
In the wake of the recent financial crisis and economic slowdown, understanding their financial condition is more important than ever for Iowa local governments, particularly in rural communities. Given Iowa’s a strong agricultural sector, financially sustainable rural communities are vital to the state economy.
Iowa State University Extension State and Local Government Programs reach public officials in all 99 Iowa counties and in a majority of the state's 944 incorporated cities every year. The Office of State and Local Government works with various state, county and municipal organizations and their affiliates to deliver educational programming to enhance government service delivery through the professional development of elected officials and appointed staff.
