Our team understands the changing needs of military families and considers it our duty to improve the quality of life for those who live in our communities. Our rebate program is available to civilian and military employees of the federal defense agencies relocating to Maryland. The program can be used along with other state assistance programs currently available to home buyers and sellers.
As you may already know, among the moves are:
- The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), which provides complete information technology services to the Department of Defense, is moving its headquarters from Northern Virginia to Fort Meade.
- The Army’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance operation (Team C4ISR) – which services the Army’s maneuver control, fire support, air defense, intelligence, combat service support, tactical radios, satellite communications and the Warfighter Information Network – is moving from Fort Monmouth, N.J., to Aberdeen Proving Ground.
- The United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM). The command was officially activated May 21, 2010, at Fort Meade, MD and reached full operational capability on October 31, 2010. The command is led by the National Security Agency/Central Security Service Director, General Keith B. Alexander.The command assumes responsibility for several existing organizations. The Joint Task Force for Global Network Operations and the Joint Functional Component Command for Network Warfare are replaced by this new command. DISA, where JTF-GNO now operates, provides technical assistance for network and information assurance to CYBERCOM, and is moving its headquarters to Ft. Meade.
As these BRAC decisions are implemented, Maryland will gain upwards of 28,000 households.
The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster has worked closely with all levels of the armed services. Our Government and Military Sales Division is conducting seminars and participating in expos and programs within Fort Meade, NSA, and other top government agencies to better support military family’s relocating to Maryland.
