Gateways for Growth is a national program recently brought to Cedar Rapids to help attract, retain, and include immigrants in our community. Gateways for Growth is a program of New American Economy and Welcoming America. The City of Cedar Rapids, in partnership with the Economic Alliance and the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, is coordinating the effort locally with grant support from the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation. Kate Brick, Director of State & Local Initiatives with New American Economy shared recent statistics about local immigration.
