The South Western Oklahoma Development Authority (SWODA), headquartered in Burns Flat, was created in 1971 in a joint effort by municipalities, counties and districts in Beckham, Custer, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Kiowa, Roger Mills and Washita counties. From these governmental units and from other population segments in the region, 30 representatives are elected to serve on SWODA's governing board. The board of trustees determines policy for SWODA. Leaders in these communities recognized that some problems shared by many of these governments could be better solved if they worked together.


  • Strengthen local governments by providing services and technical assistance.

  • Promote orderly growth and development through job creation and the preservation of the environmental integrity.

  • Improve the quality of life by maximizing economic and social opportunities for the region and its population.
