The RISE program was established to promote economic development in Iowa through the construction or improvement of roads and streets.  Iowa cities and counties are eligible for funding in the form of a grant, loan, or combination thereof.  Projects must involve the construction or improvement of a public roadway.  There are two RISE project types: 1) Immediate Opportunity, and 2) Local Development.  More information is available at https://iowadot.gov/systems_planning/Grant-Programs/Revitalize-Iowas-Sound-Economy-RISE-Program.

Sioux Center: Up to $390,491 from the city share of the RISE Fund was approved for a Local Development grant to assist in the construction of approximately 1,000 feet of 15th Street NW located on the northwest side of town. This project is necessary to provide access to five lots totaling more than 14 acres for industrial purposes. This project is anticipated to be completed by December 2021.

Pella: Up to $244,600 of the RISE Fund was approved for an Immediate Opportunity grant to assist in the paving of approximately 600 feet of 250th Avenue located on the southeast side of town. This project is necessary to provide improved access to the proposed site of Lely North America, a leader in designing and manufacturing automated systems for dairy farmers, to support a commitment of the creation of 15 new full-time jobs and 6 retained full-time jobs out of 68 RISE eligible created/retained jobs and $23,781,150 in associated capital investment.  This project is anticipated to be completed by September 2021.
