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:
Diversification & Modernization
The Diversification & Modernization 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 and Stakeholder Engagement
The Intergovernmental and Stakeholder Engagement office leverages, integrates, and amplifies the goals and activities of all program activities to ensure defense priorities benefit from the synergy created by a diverse and crosscutting set of stakeholders.
Public Schools on Military Installations
Public Schools on Military Installations program activities are designed to ensure that the children of service members are taught in environments that are safe, secure, conducive to learning, and are aligned with the local standard for other schools within that region.
