The U.S. Department of Defense Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation’s programs of assistance are designed to specifically address the challenges states and communities face as they support the defense mission. There are currently seven programs of assistance:
The Construction program enables states and communities to undertake necessary investments in public services and infrastructure to support the readiness and resiliency of installations, as well as to provide safe places for our service members and their families to live, work, and play.
The Industry Resilience program assists communities as they respond to defense changes, specifically a cancelled contract or the failure to proceed with a previously approved weapons system. In some cases, a reduction in defense spending that impacts the defense manufacturing base can also trigger assistance provided under this program.
Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot Program
The Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot (DCIP) Program is designed to address deficiencies in community infrastructure, supportive of a military installation, in order to enhance military value, installation resilience, and military family quality of life.
Intergovernmental Affairs Program
OLDCC’s Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA) program is the foundation for the success of all our activities. Our IGA program leverages, integrates, and amplifies the goals and activities of each of OLDCC’s programs to ensure defense priorities benefit from the synergy created by a diverse and crosscutting set of stakeholders.
