New Defense Infrastructure Report

ADC is happy to be partnering with one of the leading voices in energy innovation, Converge Strategies, on a new report being released today. Transmission Expansion for National Defense takes a deep dive into this important topic and provides important ideas for solving this issue moving forward.

This is where you’ll hear stories from military communities across the country. We’ll also let you know what’s happening in D.C. that impacts defense communities, military families and community members who are proud to support their local missions.

MEET AMERICA’S
DEFENSE COMMUNITIES

Behind every mission, base and family there is a community that provides a home to our military. From small towns to cities, regions and entire states – defense communities take different forms, but their role is the same – providing a foundation for our national security and a home for our military families.

Representing every major defense community and state in the country, The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) is a 300+ member organization dedicated to advancing issues that build strong communities and strengthen the ability for service members to defend our nation.
