Business and civic leaders from the four leading Midwestern metros power the Heartland Civic Collaborative. The Collaborative builds momentum through targeted civic initiatives, driving the region to reach its full potential.

Our partners span the mega-region and include leading organizations from Des Moines, Kansas City, Omaha and St. Louis.


The collaborative serves as a supplement to the current economic development efforts of each metro. Through this synergy we add value and minimize risks. Our unified presence in national policy debates helps ensure legislative and regulatory actions positively impact our region.
