The UNITE Program provides squadron leaders with funding to initiate events that will build resiliency and support unit cohesion and morale in squadrons, flights or smaller working groups. This includes Active Duty, Reserve, and both APF and NAF Civilians. This program is Air Force exclusive.
Pre-approved and easy to implement. Consider using FSS related programs to maintain funds on the base.
Events in the local area with a cost. Must be approved by Air Force Service Activity which can take up to 10 days.
Charitable work is cost effective and enables
co-workers to work together as a team in a different environment while making a big impact in the community.
Interactive events in virtual environment that aim to create a similar experience as physical events.
Types of Events
$13.50 per person for unit cohesive activities and $5.00 per person for food and non-alcoholic beverages. The Unit is responsible for any costs that exceed the allotted amount.
UNITE funds cannot be used to augment holiday parties on or off base, and cannot be combined with other APF, SM&W, or FSS unit funds.
Beginning October 3 - CY '23, Air Force Services Activity is allowing individual commanders to permit participation and provide funding for spouses and dependents of eligible members in UNITE events.
Unit Commanders select someone to serve as the UNITE contact and send their information to the Community Cohesion Coordinator (C3), Courtney Cann.
UNITE contacts schedule a conference call with the C3 to discuss the program, funding, forms, program guidelines and event ideas.
When a unit is ready to host an event, the UNITE contact submits an Event Request Form to the C3. The approval process may take up to 10 days.
Once the event is approved by AFSVC, the UNITE contact can proceed with the event.
