The Joint Land Use Study is funded by a grant made by the Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) to the Harry S Truman Coordinating Council, which is the designated Study Sponsor. In addition to numerous stakeholders in the community the following local governments are participating, along with Camp Crowder:
- City of Neosho
- Newton County

According to the OEA framework, the JLUS process is overseen by a Technical Committee and Policy Committee, each made of citizens and agency representatives from around the community. The Technical Committee identifies and studies technical issues, while the Policy Committee offers guidance and input as the Study is developed and Implementation Options are evaluated.
