Funding Partners

The Iron County Economic Partnership’s Grants Committee and Board of Directors, invites potential funding recipients to approach ICEP with ideas for economic development projects.

In the past ICEP has funded economic development projects with both for profit and non-profit entities that:

  • directly create jobs in Iron County
  • provide workforce development and other jobs training to Iron County residents and for Iron County employers, and
  • make below-market loans available to businesses that may not be able to get other support.

ICEP is typically not a majority funder of economic development projects.

We have a plan in place that guides major portions of the work we do. You can find the plan here.

To receive more information on how to partner with ICEP, please contact Connie Reed at 573-915-1569 or

ICEP also makes available Community Event funding for hosts of events that are designed to attract and increase tourism and traveler spending in Iron County.

Any funding provided by ICEP is limited by restrictions imposed by the Missouri Attorney General’s Office in the original settlement these restrictions are reflected in the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. Funding provided by ICEP must also comply with IRS laws and guidance for 501(c)(3) organizations.
