Attracting Retirees

For mild weather, plenty of lakes and woodlands, you can't beat Arkansas for retirement.  Sometimes people need and extra draw.  This program helps communities ensure they have what retirees need and explain how to recruit them.

In addition to helping communities plan for, develop and enhance retiree attraction programs, we can provide communities with the results of several studies which identify community features that attract retirees and what retirees could mean to your community.

If interested, communities can include Retiree Relocation as one of their subject areas in which they obtain Arkansas Community of Excellence (ACE) certification from the Arkansas Department of Economic Development.

For more information please contact your local county Extension agent or contact Dr. Wayne Miller, Extension Economist - Community Development (501) 671-2072.
