Reinvesting In Iowa » Buy Iowa First

Supporting economic development is a central mission of IGA members. This is why we advocate for the Buy Iowa First program, which allows Iowa-based vendors to bid competitively with out-of-state businesses. Price, distribution, volume, storage and quality of the requested product or service are all factors in the decision-making process.

In 2017, Iowa's commercial casinos purchased $239.3 million worth of products and services from companies based in our state. In fact, 84.5 percent of the total expenditures by IGA member casinos on products, supplies and services available in our state were with Iowa-based vendors.
