DES MOINES — Rep. Mary Gaskill (D-Ottumwa) has been appointed as an ex officio member of the Iowa Finance Authority.
The appointment was announced Thursday morning. The IFA provides housing assistance for low- to moderate-income Iowans. It also operates programs to help with community development, offers funds for drinking water and wastewater facilities, and manages the Beginning Farmer tax credit.
The Iowa Legislature made changes to the board during the 2019 session, allowing the appointment of four legislators — two from each party — to provide oversight.
