The RISE program was established to promote economic development in Iowa through the construction or improvement of roads and streets.  Iowa cities and counties are eligible for funding in the form of a grant, loan, or combination thereof.  Projects must involve the construction or improvement of a public roadway.  There are two RISE project types: 1) Immediate Opportunity, and 2) Local Development.  More information is available at https://iowadot.gov/systems_planning/Grant-Programs/Revitalize-Iowas-Sound-Economy-RISE-Program.

 Audubon County: Up to $261,253 from the county share of the RISE Fund was approved for an Immediate Opportunity grant to assist in the paving of approximately 285 feet of 100th Street, grading 173 feet of 100th Street, and intersection improvements to County Road M-66 and 100th Street located south of Manning.  This project is necessary to provide improved access to the proposed expansion of Puck Enterprises, a liquid manure application equipment manufacturer, to support a commitment of the creation of 30 new full-time jobs out of 40 RISE-eligible created jobs and $7,565,413 in associated capital investment.  This project is anticipated to be completed by October 2022.
