The mission of the NCA is to provide leadership and support for economic development and workforce solutions in and around Natchitoches parish and the local region.  Our group has worked closely with area partners to ensure that RFP’s are responded to timely, to help identify and Certify sites, meet regularly and plan with local and regional elected officials, work with partners to brand and market the area for investment, plan and implement workforce training programs and so much more.  Learn more on this site, or by contacting Tony Davis at tony.davis@nca-la.com.


The Natchitoches Community Alliance Foundation, Inc., or “NCA” as it is commonly referred to, is the culmination of years of hard work and planning by elected and community leaders in Natchitoches Parish.  With the ever-increasing demands of proactive, coordinated and consistent economic development efforts, leaders saw the need to have all such activities under one set of leadership and one entity.  The NCA is that entity.


The NCA is a private 501c3 funded through direct service contracts with the City of Natchitoches, the Parish of Natchitoches and Northwestern State University.  Additionally, investors, grant and service-for-fee opportunities help ensure the NCA is funded at an appropriate level to meet the needs of Natchitoches Parish and closely surrounding areas.


Whether we’re introducing you to the area on your first site visit post-RFP, or simply discussing opportunities over coffee, the NCA is here to ensure that your investment is in Natchitoches parish–and we can provide a strong return on that investment.  We are familiar with the geography, the political climate, the elected and community officials, the business environment and the culture–in short, we are your best guide to ensure that you not only receive the information you need, but also the assistance you deserve in order to maximize your time and financial investment.

Let us be a resource for you–contact Tony Davis to get started!
