The City of Manning has long had the reputation for achieving what many people thought couldn’t be achieved. It has become a model for economic development and entrepreneurship for other small rural communities to follow. This is evidenced by the city being one of just two communities in Iowa to receive the 2004 Capital Communities Award from the Federal Home Loan Bank. In addition, the city recently hosted the Community Vitality Center’s Iowa Entrepreneurship Academy in October 2005 and received another award based upon its progressive actions.
But perhaps the most important component of Manning’s success where other small towns of similar size has failed is the commitment residents have toward maintaining a vibrant healthcare community. The Manning Regional Healthcare Center drives the local economy of the region by employing more than 165 employees.
Manning, Iowa, is located on state highway 141 in the southwest corner of Carroll County, 90 miles north and west of Des Moines, 80 miles north and east of Omaha and 80 miles south and east of Sioux City.
