Joining Forces to Support Military Communities and Families Through COVID-19 Crisis

About UsAbout Us

Our nation, our military families, and the communities they live in are facing a crisis like we have not faced in one hundred years. It is a public health crisis first, but its ripples are impacting every aspect of life. Our national security depends on ensuring we provide our defense communities and military families with understanding, information, and support.

The Association of Defense Communities (ADC), Blue Star Families, and participants of the White Oak Collaborative have joined forces to create the COVID-19 Military Support Initiative (CMSI)—a united, national platform to provide resources and expertise to support communities, states, and military families through this crisis. Ultimately, the mission of the CMSI is to share information, maintain engagement, and develop best practices and policy approaches to ensure our military receives the support it deserves.
