The Relocation Assistance Coordinating Committee (RACC) is designed allow relocation service providers to create an Installation Relocation Assistance Plan that address the functions of each installation agency to ensure relocation services are accessible, effective, and responsive to the needs of the Army.  The RACC is a chance for Military Service members, Civilians and Family members to share their PCS experience upon arrival or departing Fort Lee.  Partnerships develop among the relocation service providers to expand collective resources that enhance services during frequent PCS moves and agency representatives have the opportunity to share information updates regarding their services.
