The Foundation

The Mills County Economic Development Foundation, Inc. assists new and existing businesses with information for location, relocation, expansion, and retention. We maintain a database of available commercial and industrial properties to respond to inquiries and work to get vacated and underutilized commercial properties occupied. Our vision provides a foundation on which all economic development activities are based with our communities' shared desired future. We market Iowa and our entire region via partnerships with neighboring counties and development organizations.  In addition we work closely with key partners including IEDA, Iowa Western Community College, MidAmerican Energy, Black Hills Energy, Western Iowa Networks, Chat Mobility, OmniTel and other utility partners that serve our Region.
