Grand Forks Region
Base Realignment Impact Committee

The Base Realignment Impact Committee, formalized in 2005, is a model for community collaboration. Recognizing the value of diversification opportunities for our region, Grand Forks County annually applies for grant funding through the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) to support BRIC activities.

BRIC has become the voice of the community and interface for the public and private sectors as we embrace the current and potential future missions of the GFAFB. The committee provides the mechanism to work on issues important to the diversification of our region’s economy. Through BRIC efforts, eight studies have been conducted to evaluate the impact of base realignment in the region. 

Members are respected city and regional leaders who are active in community planning and development opportunities.  They maintain connections between all levels of government, business, and education institutions. Committee members and its coordinator keep stakeholders informed on activities and opportunities through meetings such as The Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee, Community Base Enhancement Initiatives meetings, print collateral and bimonthly local radio interviews on current topics.
