Our Mission Community Resource Group, Inc. helps people build secure and sustainable futures 

Community Resource Group, Inc. (CRG) is a regional, nonprofit community development organization based in Fayetteville, Arkansas that has worked to make life better for low-income, hardworking families and small communities since its incorporation in 1975. A dynamic, hands-on organization, we fulfill our mission of helping people build secure and sustainable futures by assisting small, rural communities in their work to solve water and wastewater problems, and by helping hardworking families realize the American dream of having a safe, secure place to call home.

The Future Is Now

People in rural communities work hard and are not asking for a handout. They simply need the opportunity to succeed. CRG'sultimate goal is to lend these communities a hand-up and help them to achieve much more than temporary solutions to long-term challenges.

When rural utilities are able to supply safe, reliable water and wastewater disposal services, economic stability and the future viability of a community are protected.

And when a hardworking family realizes their dream of home ownership, long-term assets are built.

CRG knows that helping hardworking Americans build secure futures is what breaks the cycle of poverty and strengthens communities - and that’s what CRG is all about …
