DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) is again seeking the public’s help in providing information on the current impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Iowa’s businesses and nonprofit organizations by completing a new online survey developed by the University of Northern Iowa’s Institute for Decision Making and Strategic Marketing Services.
“We would like to invite you to help Iowa’s economic recovery and growth,” an IEDA statement issued Wednesday said. “This is a follow-up to the surveys released in March and May of 2020. Your participation is again vital to state efforts to understand the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Iowa businesses and organizations.”
The IEDA said it will use the information collected through the survey to inform its public policy and programming in response to the ongoing impacts of the pandemic on Iowa.
The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, and the deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 17.
“Your participation in previous statewide surveys in March and May 2020 was critically important and provided Iowa with useful information and data,” the IEDA said. “Thank you for your continued participation.”
