As the first county in Arkansas to pass a sales tax to support local economic development efforts, the Cross County Economic Development Corporation has the flexibility to provide incentives on a case-by-case basis to qualifying new businesses and existing companies.

Factors in this decision process include:

  • type of company that is looking to invest in Cross County
  • number of new jobs to be created
  • amount of private capital investment the company will make
  • wages and benefits the prospective employer will offer to the people of our area


Please contact our staff if you have any additional questions about various forms of assistance that might be available to your company

In addition to those provided by Cross County, a variety of state incentives might be available to your company, like those offered by the Arkansas Economic Development Commission.

For a more detailed overview of our incentives, please review our Incentive Policy.

Local incentive packages can be customized to your company's needs, such as site acquisition assistance, increased infrastructure capacities or assistance with workforce development and training programs. The bottom line is that we want to work with your company to ensure a smooth and profitable expansion or new location into Cross County.
