Community Economic Adjustment Assistance for Compatible Use and Joint Land Use Studies

Assist State and local governments to mitigate or prevent incompatible civilian land use/activity that is likely to impair the continued operational utility of a Department of Defense (DoD) military installation.

Grantees and participating governments are expected to adopt and implement the study
recommendations.

Examples of Funded Projects

Fiscal Year 2015: No Current Data Available Fiscal Year 2016: Local governments, regional planning organizations, and some states sponsor compatible use projects, to include Joint Land Use Studies, compatible energy siting initiatives and special purpose studies with a focus on addressing specific compatibility issues, such as incompatible civilian development in a Clear Zone or coordinated, statewide assistance.

These compatible use projects are all cooperative, community-driven planning efforts to address and prevent incompatible civilian development around military operations.

Some ongoing Joint Land Use Study projects include expansive geographic areas involving multiple military installations and jurisdictions to identify, evaluate and address multiple compatibility factors that could adversely impact continued military operations.

Completion of a compatible use project will result in an implementation strategy with assigned responsibilities and time frame to promote compatible civilian development that supports long-term military mission sustainability and continued regional community development.

Program Accomplishments

Fiscal Year 2015: The program is expected to fund 24 new Joint Land Use Studies and 8 Joint Land Use Studies were completed. More than 72 planning studies are underway across the country, providing assistance throughout 32 States and more than 72 local communities. Fiscal Year 2016: During FY16 the program responded to 20 new Joint Land Use Study nominations from the Military Services and two Joint Land Use Studies were completed. In response to the April 3, 2015, Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity for Siting of Compatible Energy Development, the first grant award was made to a local government/state university partnership for community planning assistance to help address the siting of energy projects that would adversely affect DoD's test, training, and military operations, especially when located near installations, ranges, or on lands beneath designated military training routes or special use airspace. During FY16 more than 75 compatible use projects were underway across the country, providing assistance throughout 26 States. Fiscal Year 2017: No Current Data Available

Uses and Use Restrictions

Respond to encroachment of the civilian community that is likely to impair the continued operational utility of the military installation through a Compatible Use or Joint Land Use Study.

The State and/or local government partners with the military installation to plan and carry out strategies promoting compatible civilian development adjacent to installations, ranges, and military flight corridors.

The study includes a strategic plan with specific implementation actions to ensure civilian growth and development are compatible with vital training, testing, and other military missions.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicant Eligibility

Applicants for this assistance are to contact the Office of Economic Adjustment and a Project Manager will be assigned to work with the applicant to determine eligibility for assistance under this program.

States, counties, municipalities, other political subdivisions of a State, and special purpose units of a State or local government are eligible for this assistance if the Director, Office of Economic Adjustment determines that the encroachment of the civilian community is likely to impair the continued operational utility of the military installation.

Beneficiary Eligibility

States and communities, including local property owners, as well as the local military installation.

Credentials/Documentation

Applicants will be required to provide documentation consistent with the authority under which the assistance is being sought. Applicants must document their intent to work with the Military Department, Federal, State, and local officials, residents, businesses, and landowners to cooperatively participate in the development and implementation of a strategic plan and specific implementation measures to ensure civilian growth and development are compatible with the continued operational utility of the military installation. Applicants also must show evidence that the proposed planning process and implementation measures will prevent further encroachment on the military installation. 2 CFR 200, Subpart E - Cost Principles applies to this program.

Aplication and Award Process

Preapplication Coordination

When in receipt of a Military Department nomination, the Office of Economic Adjustment Director will notify the Installation Commander that an Office of Economic Adjustment Project Manager will schedule a visit to provide a program overview and confirm the Installation Commander?s support to engage the affected local governments and/or State in a Joint Land Use Study.

The Project Manager also will validate encroachment of the civilian community that is likely to impair the continued operational utility of the military installation.

After confirming installation support for the Joint Land Use Study and validating civilian encroachment, the Project Manager then will proceed to engage the affected local governments and/or State to confirm their interest and support to undertake the study and carry out the study recommendations.

Once support from the Installation Commander and affected local governments and/or State is confirmed, the Project Manager will work with the local governments and/or State to craft an effective and responsive program of assistance to ensure civilian growth and development are compatible with the continued operational utility of the military installation. The Office of Economic Adjustment also may provide community planning assistance to help prevent the siting of energy projects from adversely affecting Department of Defense test, training, and military operations.

The Office of Economic Adjustment will consider on a continuing basis, subject to available appropriations, proposals for grant assistance to support communities, regions, and states to assist in the siting of energy project investments so they do not impair the continued operational utility of a Department of Defense installation.

Commercial development of energy projects may affect unique military activities and readiness, especially when located near installations, ranges, or on lands beneath designated military training routes or special use airspace.

State and local governments can support effective collaboration, early engagement and dialog between the Department of Defense and energy developers to ensure proposed energy projects may proceed without compromising the military missions.

A proposal must respond to the need to ensure proposed energy projects may proceed without compromising Department of Defense test, training, and military operations, to include radar interference from wind turbines; low-level flight obstructions associated with tall structures such as solar power towers and wind turbine projects; electromagnetic interference from high voltage electrical transmission lines; and glint and glare impacts to flight operations associated with solar photovoltaic arrays or power tower projects near military airfields.

Details on how to apply can be found in the April 3, 2015, Federal Register Notice. The Office of Economic Adjustment Project Manager will provide necessary information to assist the State or local government to prepare and submit an application for financial assistance under this program.

Environmental impact information is not required for this program.
