Providing Service for Over 55 Years

The Economic Opportunity Agency was established in December 1965 to help low-income families succeed economically and socially in Northwest Arkansas. We believe that when we empower families to succeed through their own efforts, we empower all of Northwest Arkansas to succeed as a great place to work and live.
