Through a prioritization process, the Loess Hills Missouri River Region Board has selected seven initial projects to dedicate $338,000 towards. Consistent with the guidelines set forth by the Iowa Parks Foundation, each $1 will be matched with at least $5 in local and private resources, leveraging the total $500,000 investment into an additional $2.5 Million in improvements to the region’s recreational resources.
Projects approved for funding to date include:

The selection and approval of these priority projects by the Loess Hills Missouri River Region Board will allow them to utilize the specified amounts as match when seeking additional funds for the projects. These seven priority projects represent over $9.5 Million in planned recreational improvements to the tri-county region. To date, over $3.5 Million of that has been secured or pledged towards their implementation.
