About ECIA

East Central Intergovernmental Association is committed to working with member governments, their citizens, and others to empower eastern Iowa communities and enhance the quality of life in Cedar, Clinton, Delaware, Dubuque and Jackson Counties. We exist because of the need for local governments facing similar problems to cooperate in finding solutions. Through ECIA membership, local governments share resources they could not afford individually.

The services and programs provided by ECIA cover six broad categories: Community Development, Economic Development, Housing Assistance, Special Programs, Transit, and Transportation and Planning.

The mission of ECIA is to empower communities and their people through sustainable partnerships; promoting equity and inclusivity; and providing services to enhance the quality of life in the region.

ECIA does not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, or age in admission to, participation in, or receipt of the services and benefits under any of its programs and activities, whether carried out by ECIA directly or through a contractor or any other entity with which ECIA arranges to carry out its programs and activities.

For more information, please visit our non-descrimination policy page.

ECIA practices an open information and public records policy. ECIA follows Iowa Code Chapter 22, Open Records. All public record requests should be directed to ecia@ecia.org. The designated ECIA staff person that maintains the public records will respond to your request. Thank you.
