COVID-19 Military Support Initiative
ADC AND BLUE STAR FAMILIES JOIN FORCES TO SUPPORT MILITARY COMMUNITIES AND FAMILIES THROUGH COVID-19 STIMULUS
The Association of Defense Communities (ADC), Blue Star Families, and participants of the White Oak Collaborative are joining forces to create a united, national platform for sharing information, maintaining engagement, developing best practices and policy approaches to ensure our military receives the support it deserves. The COVID-19 Military Support Initiative (CMSI) will provide resources and expertise to support communities, states and military families through this crisis, including:
● Providing comprehensive coverage of the crisis through a new daily publication that will build on ADC’s widely-read On Base daily newsletter.
● Hosting Virtual Town Halls on the key issues impacting our military, defense communities and military families during the crisis.
● Convening Military Community and Family Organizations and experts to identify and advance best practices and policy solutions.
● Create a repository to capture and document best practices and lessons-learned.
