The grant awards will benefit Fort Leonard Wood and Whiteman Air Force Base while supporting their communities and potential for future investments.
A grant of more than 163-thousand dollars was awarded to the Leonard Wood Institute at Fort Wood. This is a followup grant to one awarded previously for the development of marketing plans, engagement strategies, techniques, and other activities Those activities would communicate the military value of increased Department of Defense investments at Fort Leonard Wood and attract new, non-DOD federal agency missions, organizations and jobs to the installation.
“We’re proud to work alongside the department as it supports service members and their communities through the Military Community Reinvestment Grant Program,” said Steve Ehrhardt, Chairman of the Missouri Military Preparedness and Enhancement Commission. “This program aligns with the Commission’s purpose of working to protect, keep, and enhance mission capabilities. I look forward to seeing the impact of these grant awards as they support the service members and families of Fort Leonard Wood and Whiteman Air Force Base.”
