Springdale Mixed-Income Housing Development to Offer 30 Attainable Units for Region’s Workforce
Groundwork – previously the Northwest Arkansas workforce housing center – today announced its first investment in an attainable housing development to be constructed in Springdale. The development is supported by a $6.75 million grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
The project, dubbed “Big Emma” by its planners, is a 77-unit mixed-income apartment development located on Emma Avenue in downtown Springdale. The investment from Groundwork ensures 30 of the units will be permanently reserved for households earning below the area median income in Northwest Arkansas.
