Through September 30, 2004, the federal agencies most frequently involved in assisting communities reported they had collectively provided about $1.9 billion in assistance in response to the previous rounds (1988, 1991, 1993, and 1995) of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). Interagency coordination has also facilitated the civilian reuse of former military installations to benefit the public through Federal agency-sponsored public benefit conveyances. For more information, see Federal Sponsoring Agencies and Public Benefit Conveyances.
The following programs are available to assist communities with the alleviation of socioeconomic effects that may result from military base closures and realignments. Under Executive Order 12788, as amended, assistance for communities impacted by Defense program changes is coordinated across the Federal Government through the Economic Adjustment Committee (EAC). The Department of Defense's Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) staffs the EAC and its Director is the EAC's Executive Director. Communities are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the following resources, including accessing program information through the provided internet links. OEA staff is available at (703) 604-6020 to address any questions you may have concerning the EAC, federal assistance available to affected communities, or specific local needs that may exist.
Please note that while OEA attempts to provide current information, these programs and their availability are subject to change without notice. Please contact the appropriate agency for the most up-to-date information on current programs.
