IFC-leveraged projects have brought more than $130M of funding from external sources to the state of Iowa—10 times the total state funding the center has received since it was established in 2009. The IFC is currently funded at $1.2M per year.

A few of these funding entities include:

  • National Science Foundation
  • NASA
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Iowa Department of Natural Resources
  • Iowa Department of Transportation

“The [Iowa Flood] Center’s importance to river communities can’t be overstated. Its value vastly exceeds its budget.”
