Northwest Arkansas Council

Executive Director, Workforce Housing Center

The Northwest Arkansas Council seeks an executive director for its new workforce housing center.

The program was announced in March 2021 and will focus on addressing the emerging issue of housing affordability in Northwest Arkansas. The workforce housing center will be incubated at the Northwest Arkansas Council with support from the Walton Family Foundation. Rapid population growth is predicted to continue in the region for at least the next 25 years. Homebuilders aren’t expected to produce enough housing or provide the kind of affordability the region’s workforce will need going forward.

The center will collaborate with community partners to strategically address housing needs and priorities in the region. 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 center will promote housing development in proximity to employment centers, lifestyle amenities and services such as diverse mobility options.
