Great American Defense Communities Program

The nomination process for the 2021 Great American Defense Communities Program is now open. The 2021 program includes a special focus on community recovery and resilience. The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) are particularly interested in highlighting how communities have come together to support economic, health, and social renewal throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and how they are addressing concerns of racial equality and inclusion. 

This is your chance to celebrate your community and join over 30 regions who have been recognized by ADC as going above and beyond to support service members, their families, and veterans.
