Iowa’s legislative session finally came to a close in the early morning hours of May 25, 2022. Now that there has been time to let the dust settle, we can proudly say that tourism experienced a record year in terms of funding appropriated by Iowa’s legislature.

Tourism programming was appropriated over $50.79 M in funding. Over $30.5 M of that was new funding. Some of the new funding is being used to create new programing and some is being used to bolster current programming. Below is a list of the key tourism funding highlights.

Thank you to Iowa’s elected officials for valuing the power of tourism. Cornerstone Government Affairs, tourism champions, the Legislative tourism caucus, and industry grassroots efforts combined to create the powerful results for Iowa’s tourism industry.
