Governor Kim Reynolds has set aside six million dollars from federal coronavirus relief funds to create the “Iowa County Fairs Relief Program.” Iowa Economic Development Authority spokesperson Kanan Kappleman says the program will give a boost to fairs.
“The program provides short-term relief to eligible county and district fairs for the purpose of continuing or resuming operations — particularly as it relates to the current pandemic.”
The county fair in Wapello County had to be cancelled this year because of coronavirus concerns. Fair managers can see a full list of eligibility requirements at: iowabusinessrecovery.com. The deadline for applications is November 16th.
