Personnel transfer and job training assistance, in collaboration with the Department of Labor. Local economic adjustment assistance through the Defense Department's Office of Economic Adjustment. Use of all of our authorities to accelerate and support reuse needs. Work with the Department of Commerce and other federal agencies to assist local economic recovery.
