The Department of the Air Force Community Partnership Program reached its 500th agreement, March 1, a major milestone symbolizing the powerful teamwork between installations and communities to turn shared challenges into shared solutions since 2013.

The latest agreement came from the combined effort of installation and community leaders in Dayton, Ohio, to make improvements on a primary road for the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, which serves as an important source of education and outreach to the public.

The installation chose to leverage nearby municipal capabilities and turned to the City of Riverside for help in pavement planning and overlay, curb enhancement, and improved water drainage around the area.

The arrangement was facilitated through an intergovernmental support agreement, and funding supplied through a grant from the state’s Ohio Military Facilities Commission.

To-date, the AFCP Program’s total return on investment approaches $150 million. The program has also driven countless quality of life improvements that simply cannot be quantified.

These collective benefits were derived from the hard work and dedication of installation and community leaders.
