Arkansas Defense Counseling

Matrix conducted a comprehensive gap analysis of the Fort Smith, Arkansas, area and developed a Military Friendly Guide for the state with the goal of defining a plan of action for the Fort Smith Economic Infrastructure Fund to win F-35 missions at the local Ebbing Air National Guard Base.

To ensure a comprehensive and accurate guide, our team analyzed existing military friendly programs and legislative policies for comparison with neighboring states. The resulting gap analysis includes tailored recommendations for the the Fort Smith Economic Infrastructure Fund and State of Arkansas to improve their taxation, education, employment, monetary benefits, and advocacy programs.

Matrix will also coordinate strategic communications and advocacy at the federal level to further enhance the client’s competitive advantage in attracting valuable military missions to the area.
