The MRPC is a multistate organization that works collectively to: preserve, promote and enhance the scenic, historic and recreational resources of the Mississippi River; foster the economic growth of the corridor; and develop the national, scenic and historic parkway, known as the Great River Road.

As part of the MRPC, the Iowa MRPC focuses on the same mission objectives in relation to Iowa's portions of the National Scenic Byway, Iowa Great River Road and Mississippi River Valley. The Governor of Iowa appoints members to the Iowa MRPC from each of the 10 counties that border the Mississippi River. These include: Allamakee, Clayton, Dubuque, Jackson, Clinton, Scott, Muscatine, Louisa, Des Moines, and Lee counties. The Iowa MRPC also includes ex officio members from the Iowa Department of Transportation, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Economic Development Authority’s Iowa Tourism Office, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
