Welcome to the Hancock County Economic Development Website

Hancock County is where "Quality Workers Enjoy Quality of Life". Like most of Iowa, we have well educated, hardworking people who want to do quality work. They enjoy living in an area with pleasant scenery, family values, and home town pride. This is a great place to live, while building your business. We are convenient to interstate highways and high speed wireless communication; golfing, lake recreation and snowmobiling are also here. With a strong commitment to family life, our communities offer everything you need - affordable housing, great health care, the finest K-12 schools, along with a variety of community celebrations and attractions that bring residents and visitors together to celebrate every year.
We are home to some diverse manufacturers producing motor homes, tire service trucks, trucks with cranes, tool & die products, table saws, livestock feeders and feed supplements, egg breaking and drying, and even frozen cookie dough! Hancock County is the county of choice for businesses that want to succeed. We ensure productivity delivered by a skilled, friendly workforce combined with low business overhead costs, workforce training programs and tax credits, and a local economic development organization that is here to serve you!
