Russellville Regional Economic Development Alliance

The Russellville Regional Economic Development Alliance is a not-for-profit, public/private partnership formed in 1996 with two main priorities: recruit new manufacturers to the area, and assist existing manufacturers with expansion projects and local issues. The Alliance’s Board of Directors and members support the Alliance staff to create a positive business climate, utilize incentives and create connections. Since its inception, the Alliance has successfully recruited many new industries to the River Valley region. The Alliance members strongly believe in:

  • Leadership for regional economic development
  • Collaboration and connectivity
  • A business climate that says “ready for development”
  • Work/life balance

The Alliance works with partners across the region and state to bring private, state and federal grants to new and existing companies to assist with their projects.

These partners include the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, Entergy Arkansas, and U.S. Economic Development Administration as well as others.

For more information or assistance with your relocation or expansion project, please contact us and let us help you.
