Military/Community Partnerships

Community Partnerships create a bridge between our military installations and the community, state, municipalities, and business owners by providing opportunity for shared contracts, goods and services.

Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) Updates

The Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) program is the backbone of the Missile Defense Agency’s layered defense strategy to protect the U.S. homeland from ballistic missile attack.


Since the start of WW2 Fairbanks has been a “Military Town”. Today our Military Industry generates 11,552 jobs (30% of all Jobs in Fairbanks) through direct, indirect and induced local spending. These jobs pay an annual average of $ 72,000  (4th highest among all sectors); they equal 38% of all wages, salary and benefit payments in Fairbanks. The Military Industry is by far the largest contributor to the Fairbanks economy and FEDC supports and coordinates the Borough and Cities efforts to sustain and grow this industry.

Interior Issues Council

The Interior Issues Council is a non-partisan, pro-Interior forum, collaborating across interests to solve problems.           

To begin this pursuit, a cross section of community members and opinion leaders were invited to participate in a half day facilitated discussion on how to address significant public issues confronting Interior Alaska and the state.


FEDC is proud to present its Interior Grown Agriculture Directory. 

Use it to find farmers and ag-resources based here in the Interior.

Looking for a particular Alaska Grown produce item? Our directory itemizes what’s available in the Interior, which farmers are selling what produce, and where to buy.
