The Southeast Iowa Regional Economic & Port Authority exists to create new economic development opportunities in Lee County and Southeast Iowa. SIREPA seeks to encourage growth by removing obstacles to capital investment and lowering fixed costs for private companies in the region by using bonding, financing, and ownership abilities.
As the only port authority in the State of Iowa, SIREPA has unique capabilities to foster and support economic growth in Lee County. State legislation enables SIREPA to establish and operate Foreign Trade Zones, issue bonds, make loans, and more. SIREPA's tax exempt status provides additional opportunities for public and private collaboration.
SIREPA currently partners with the Southeast Iowa Regional Planning Commission (SEIRPC) for administrative services. Please contact SEIRPC Executive Director Mike Norris regarding any matters related to SIREPA.
