Community Development

Strengthening Communities Through Building Jobs and Public Infrastructure

Idaho’s rural leaders need all the help they can get
to create more livable and sustainable communities.

With tight budgets and limited staff, finding resources to improve community infrastructure or develop strategic plans for economic and community development is often the last on the long list of demands. However, in South-Central Idaho, our community leaders find that help is just a phone call away.

What can RIVDA do for your community?

For more than four decades, Region IV Development Association (RIVDA) has been providing hands-on technical assistance to communities throughout southern Idaho – from helping with basic infrastructure development (sewer, water, fire protection) to assisting with community building (training, visioning, and comprehensive planning).  The Region IV Development team can assist with town meetings, preparing funding applications, and project administration.

Funding Programs We Work With

Region IV Development currently operates or has involvement in a wide variety of programs, projects, and activities that directly impact communities across the region.  Whether you are looking for help with community infrastructure planning or implementation, the RIVDA team can help.  Some of the programs we work with include:
