OEA provides the resources to help communities help themselves respond to:
Economic Adjustment Committee (EAC)
Through its involvement in the Economic Adjustment Committee (EAC), OEA also serves as a focal point for transition assistance from other relevant federal programs. The EAC is composed of 22 federal departments and agencies that work together to coordinate and leverage technical and financial assistance to help communities, businesses, and/or workers respond to DoD-driven impacts. This allows communities access to a full complement of federal government resources.
In addition to coordinating federal resources to local communities, OEA also works directly with states through its State Planning Assistance program to enhance state capacity to assist communities, businesses, and workers adversely affected by Defense program changes.
