Base Realignment and Closure

Any change to operations on a local military installation can have an impact on the surrounding communities. Whether it is an increase or reduction in number of forces located on base, a base closure, or program adjustment, these changes can disrupt the economic stability of towns and even whole states. To minimize the impacts of military operational changes, OEA provides technical guidance and expertise, as well as financial assistance to state and local governments directly affected by these changes.

If your community is affected by BRAC, you may be eligible to receive financial assistance and the expert support necessary to address the economic impact to local and regional communities. By working with OEA, communities facing BRAC are able to work toward new opportunities for economic stability.
