Infrastructure Planning and Assistance

The physical infrastructure of a community and region make or break the ability to support community economic development.

The CAPDD staff work with the region's local governments and other public community economic development entities in planning and identifying grants and other forms of funding that enable the region to secure funding for the needed infrastructure that enable the region to attract, retain, and expand jobs and services in the CAPDD communities. The CAPDD plans addresses infrastructure needs through partnerships with Arkansas and federal agencies such as:

Arkansas Deparment of Rural Services

Arkansas Economic Development Commission

Delta Regional Authority

Economic Development Administration

United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development

United States Department of Environmental Protection
