Vision Iowa

Vision Iowa was created to assist projects that will provide recreational, cultural, entertainment and educational attractions. Projects must be available to the general public for public use and be primarily vertical infrastructure. These attractions position a community to take advantage of economic development opportunities in tourism and strengthen a community’s competitiveness as a place to work and live.

The program is comprised of three funds: Vision Iowa, Community Attraction and Tourism (CAT) and River Enhancement Community Attraction and Tourism (RECAT).

The Community Attraction and Tourism (CAT) program was created to assist projects that will provide recreational, cultural, entertainment and educational attractions. Projects must be available to the general public for public use and be primarily vertical infrastructure.

Applications, instructions and further information can be found in the Resources area at the bottom of this page.
