Abstract : Numerous Government assistance programs are available to help individuals, industries, and communities make the transition from defense to civilian pursuits. Information about such assistance programs is an important element in the design of effective strategies for the defense transition and it has not previously been readily available in any single source document. This compendium provides brief descriptive summaries of established programs, new legislation, and other initiatives that are relevant for DoD downsizing. Many Federal, state, and local economic-oriented assistance programs that currently exist or are being planned, which can be used to help mitigate economic impacts, are identified. Great efforts were made to represent the various types of assistance programs available. For the states, emphasis was placed upon identifying state and local programs in those states known to have a significant DoD presence, direct military jobs, and/or defense industry contracts. The compendium lists a large number of these programs, although it is not all- inclusive. Of the 144 programs listed in the compendium, 61 programs are state and local initiatives
