The Economic Alliance’s mission is to drive economic, workforce and population growth strategies and to help businesses succeed. Encouraging capital investment, job creation and attracting new residents and visitors alike, all drive that mission forward.

This year, we have partnered with Economic Alliance member, Livability Media, a division of Journal Communications, on a digital marketing program to amplify Cedar Rapids’ unique story on a national level via The site is a nationally recognized authority on the best places to live and work. Cedar Rapids was ranked #50 on Livability's 2019 list of 100 Best Places to Live. Our partnership also included the creation of a print publication that will be available to membership on December 18, 2019. Members will be mailed the print publication.

Using these tools in collaboration with our regional workforce organization, ICR Iowa, we plan to reach a variety of potential workforce audiences including individuals and families attracted to our quality of life. We plan to reach those audiences eager to see how moving to Cedar Rapids might make sense for their bottom line, eager to embrace our city’s fifth season and to hear about our abundant and diverse employment opportunities as we boast nearly 300 different manufacturing plants and two dozen Fortune 500 companies.

The highly visual publication includes information about Cedar Rapids from our thriving insurance and finance sector and coordinated and quality healthcare in the MedQuarter to coverage of development investments enhancing our hospitality, recreation and education to Iowa BIG high school students make meaningful connections through business initiatives and projects.

We look forward to sharing Livability Cedar Rapids with our members and to share what we love about Cedar Rapids with the rest of the country.
