Iberia Industrial Development Foundation

The Iberia Industrial Development Foundation (IDF) was established in 1984 as a Quasi-Public Foundation and serves as the primary facilitator of Economic Development Activities for the Parish of Iberia, Louisiana and the communities of New Iberia, Jeanerette, Loreauville and Delcambre, Louisiana as well as the Port of Iberia, Acadiana Regional Airport and LeMaire Memorial Airport Industrial Park Complexes.   
The IDF is also a member-driven organization made up of both public entities and private business members.  It is governed by a 20 member Board of Directors which is made up of representatives from all local governing bodies, and local business leaders.  In addition to recruitment of new business and economic development for the Iberia community, the IDF also offers business advisory services to existing local businesses in an effort to help them grow and prosper and provides a central location for dissemination of information of available resources that create business opportunities. 

Iberia Economic Development Authority

The Iberia Economic Development Authority (IEDA), a state chartered authority, serves to focus on moving Iberia Parish forward in the public domain with realistic, actionable ideas and projects that are attainable now or in the near future. To that end, the IEDA Board of Commissioners is moving forward aggressively on strategic plans that have been developed with various governmental and private entities within the community, with the goal being to select several attainable projects that will make Iberia Parish a better place to live, work and do business. The IEDA will then work closely with governmental leaders to get these projects completed in an expedious manner. Whether expanding fiber optics, examining the connectivity of our industrial parks, building new business parks or identifying new sites for shovel ready development or improving our intermodal assets, our focus is always to ask “How can we make it better now?”
