The Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance and Iowa City Area Development Group extended its ICR Iowa partnership through 2026, the organizations announced Tuesday afternoon.
The five-year agreement includes a “more aggressive outreach” to recruit businesses and individuals to the Corridor, according to a news release.
“The very first action of the ICR Board after approval of this new agreement was to restart our outreach to bring people to this region,” Lydia Brown, ICR Iowa’s board chairwoman, said in the news release.
ICR Iowa’s board eliminated its president and chief executive officer position in November in an effort to be “good stewards of our investors' dollars,” Brown told The Gazette in November.
The agreement received unanimous consent from the Economic Alliance and ICAD boards, according to the release. ICAD and the Economic Alliance’s shared staffing support of ICR Future, ICR Talent and Inclusive ICR also will continue.
