ICR IOWA is the regional economic development organization serving the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids (ICR) metro, a growing region that is home to almost half a million people, the University of Iowa (Go Hawks!), and internationally recognized industries like Rockwell Collins, ACT, and General Mills. What makes us unique? We offer a big-ten college town lifestyle with a 15-minute commute, award-winning PUBLIC schools, and homes that you (or your workforce) can afford without a roommate. We are educated, diverse, urban (or rural if you prefer) and, well, the cool-kids in the Midwest. Some call us the “Austin of Iowa,” but we prefer ICR. Check us out!
