The workforce housing center is focused on the emerging issue of housing affordability in Benton and Washington counties in Northwest Arkansas.
The goal is to strengthen the bonds in Northwest Arkansas communities by creating a variety of well-designed housing options and mixed-income neighborhoods for the region’s workers and their families.
The workforce housing center is being incubated at the Northwest Arkansas Council with support from the Walton Family Foundation. The center will collaborate with community partners to develop a strategic plan specific to housing needs and priorities.
We will promote housing development in proximity to employment centers, lifestyle amenities and essential services.
