WelcomeNWA

The WelcomeNWA program was created to assist Northwest Arkansas communities in becoming more welcoming to anyone who calls the region home - whether they come from another country, another state, or another Arkansas region.

Increasing efforts to be more inclusive will lead to a positive economic impact and other regional benefits.

Initial goals of WelcomeNWA include working with Northwest Arkansas cities to develop a regional strategic plan to welcome and integrate everyone living in Northwest Arkansas.

WelcomeNWA has a website with more information about its work in Northwest Arkansas.
