This week the Senate unanimously approved the Empower Rural Iowa Initiative. The bill provides $25 million in housing tax credits for smaller communities and creates a grant program to expand broadband service in rural Iowa. 
Census data show the help is desperately needed. Over the past decade, most of Iowa's small communities have gotten smaller but the state as a whole has been growing. 
Iowa's population went up 3.6-percent from 2010 to 2018, but a select few counties are seeing most of that growth.
