Tomorrow: OLDCC Webinar on DCIP

February 15, 2023

The DOD Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation will host a webinar Thursday at 3 p.m. EDT for states and communities interested in the Defense Community Infrastructure Program (DCIP). The event will be a pre-proposal briefing, OLDCC said in a bulletin, which also contains the link to participate.

OLDCC’s DCIP website advises that communities start working on their proposals now. The site also outlines what projects are eligible, including those outlined in the fiscal year 2023 National Defense Authorization Act.

In recent years, proposals have typically been due in the summer with awards finalized by the end of the fiscal year in September.
