FY 2015 Defense Spending By State report now available for download.

Hampton Roads Region

Purpose: 

To evaluate community needs and capabilities, and provide assistance to Naval Station Norfolk, Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads, Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, Naval Air Station Oceana, Cities of Norfolk and Virginia Beach, Commonwealth of Virginia, and other adjacent jurisdictions, as required. NOAA has cited the Hampton Roads Region as the second largest population center at risk from sea level rise. The region's 1.7 million population is heavily dependent upon the waterways, as well as a high concentration of valuable military, commercial, industrial assets, including Naval Station Norfolk, the largest naval base in the world. The need for strategic regional planning and response across jurisdictional boundaries, among military installations, and with the Commonwealth is essential for effective regional solutions to address shared risks and vulnerabilities posed by sea level rise and recurrent flooding.
