Southeast Iowa Regional Planning Commission (SEIRPC) Executive Director Mike Norris says the organization has come a long way over the last four decades.

The Southeast Iowa Regional Planning Commission says members are more than getting their money back on their investments in the organization.

The Southeast Iowa Regional Planning Commission (SEIRPC) is trying to get more money in the hands of potential employers.

The organization currently administers four regional revolving loan funds.  Its executive committee has signed off on a plan to increase the maximum amount of money available through the funds.

Executive Director Mike Norris says instead of $125,000, potential businesses in Lee, Des Moines, Henry and Louisa Counties could access $250,000.
