Relocation Readiness

Relocation is a way of life in the military and it can be stressful. Decisions must be made and your choices can have significant, long-term effects on your life. You need accurate, timely information to make these decisions.

The Relocation Readiness Program is the first point of contact for relocation information and assistance. You can get up-to-date information about your new base and community before you move, learn how to prepare for your move, get help in planning your moving cost, check out the job market and learn new skills to reduce the stress of moving.

This is a congressionally mandated program designed to eliminate or diminish the personal and family stress that military families experience with a permanent change of station by providing assistance, counseling, education and training throughout all phases of the relocation process. Specialized programs and services offered include individual or group counseling, sponsorship and pre-arrival information, mandatory overseas briefings and post-move orientation, and immigration services.
