In Kind Grant Information and Application

Laughlin A.F.B. Economic Impact Study 2009

The Economic Impact Statement (EIS) provides unclassified key information about the economic impact of an Air Force base on the surrounding community. This document is made available to senior military officials, federal, state, and local officials, as well as to local business leaders and visitors to the base. An installation’s economic impact on the local community is calculated by use of a cost model that breaks out off-base local area spending from gross expenditures. For the purpose of the model, the local area, or Economic Impact Region (EIR), includes all counties encompassing a 50-mile radius from the center of the Air Force base.
