Jefferson County Awarded Destination Iowa Grant

In early March, Governor Reynold’s announced the final round award recipients of the Destination Iowa funds. Jefferson County was awarded $450,000 for the Prairie Ridge Campground planned for Jefferson County Park. The money represents 39% of the total project investment of $1,166,430. The Jefferson County Supervisors are matching $440,000 from their American Rescue Plan Act funds.  Jefferson County Conservation will be coming up with the balance. The Prairie Ridge Campground rendering shows what the campground may look like. The campground will be located off Key Blvd and will be in what is currently a row crop field.
