Relocation Assistance Program

Stressed about moving? Our Relocation Assistance Program at Columbus AFB will assist you with information and education to ease the personal and family stressors military families experience with a permanent change of station (PCS). Serving over 500 each year, the Relocation Assistance Program (RAP) manager ensures members and/or families make informed decisions and preparations when relocating/moving. The most important thing you can do to ensure a smooth move is start planning early using the many programs, services and tools available.

Classes/Workshops

Wing Newcomers Orientation – Newcomers Orientation is 0800-0915.  This base-wide CONNECTION orientation is held at the Kaye Auditorium. The event’s main foundation is a mobile App, so if you plan to attend, please locate and download the Columbus Air Force Base App from the App Store prior to attending. To register, please contact your unit CSS, or for more information, please call the A&FRC Relocation Manager at (662) 434-2701/2790.
