Welcome to Iowa's Economic Recovery
Iowa Accountability & Transparency Board
As part of the Culver-Judge Administration’s commitment to meeting all requirements of the ARRA and to keeping Iowans informed about how the ARRA funds are being used to improve Iowa’s economy, Governor Culver signed Executive Order #12 on April 14, 2009 creating the Iowa Accountability and Transparency Board (IATB).
