Regional Development Authority

The Regional Development Authority (RDA) was founded in 1989 for the purpose of becoming the qualified sponsoring organization for a riverboat casino in Davenport, Iowa. In 2016, Rhythm City's riverboat casino moved ashore and became a land-based Rhythm City Casino Resort. The original sponsoring organization for the riverboat, Riverboat Development Authority, was renamed Regional Development Authority. You can see the Secretary of State's confirmation of this change here.

Regional Development Authority is the nonprofit sponsor of the license for the land-based Rhythm City Casino Resort.

Grants awards are limited to programs benefiting residents of Scott County, Iowa.
