As result of a $2.1M OEA Economic Adjustment Investment, the Pennyrile Area Development District was able to inform and calm its population over the potential economic impacts associated with the inactivation of the 159th Combat Aviation Brigade and the 4th Brigade Combat Team, resulting in the loss of 5,000 soldiers. This effort allowed jurisdictions in Kentucky and Tennessee, to understand impacts to small businesses of potential shifts in business patterns, keep local housing markets from over-reacting, develop a $7.7M U.S. Department of Labor workforce development program for dislocated personnel, and the region to embrace the Army’s basing actions.
