Intent of the UNITE Initiative is to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to develop and deliver programs to build cohesion for personnel within their unit. You are able to “personalize” events to meet the needs and interests of your unit and to help ensure max participation.
Unite is one component of CSAF Focus Area #1 “Revitalizing Squadrons”
Eligibility- Active Duty, Reserves, and Civilians on RAF Lakenheath- includes LNDH, GS, MOD, GSU
We are the 48 FSS Unite program. Our goals are to support SQ leaders, maximize the use of FSS facilities, measure impact, and provide maximum flexibility to SQ commanders. You use this program for any of the following reasons:
Community, Cohesion Coordinator (C3)/Unite Program Coordinator:
UNITE is here to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to deliver programs that build cohesion for personnel within their unit. This includes assigned Active Duty, and both APF and NAF Civilians.
We can help you with funding for your UNITE events. Events must be recreational and will be subsidized up to $13.50 per person. Currently, we can pay for food and beverages up to $5 per person attending. *Beverages do not include alcohol. Our support can only go towards unit cohesion events.
"Overarching feedback is that members want more events! The Unite funding continues to significantly offset costs for morale events. It has proven especially vital during the pandemic and periods of lock down with noted impacts to our member’s morale. Having the Unite funding has enabled us to build resilience as a unit and it also gives leadership a tangible way to thank the men and women for all their hard work, dedication and sacrifice." - CMSgt Brown MXG

Sharing Metrics from an Event
Ready to Execute (RTE):
FSS related events should be considered first as they are pre-approved, easy to implement and keep funds on the installation.
Unit Developed Events (UDE):
Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create UDPs that capitalize on opportunities available in the local area. UDPs require prior approval through the Air Force Services Activity (AFSVA) and may take up to 30 days.
Charitable work provides a cost-effective team building activity that allows co-workers to see each other in a new light and can make a significant impact in your community. Free events do not need approval, but we still need to capture the information.
Food & Beverage - Must be used with a Unite event. One beverage limit per meal. No alcohol.
APF (MOA) Dollars
Equipment Rentals, program supplies, decorations, and entertainment - No prizes
UNITE funds CAN'T be used to augment holiday parties. Private Org funds may be used to cover expenses that exceed the allotted amount, but Unit Enhancement Funds and SM&W Funds CAN'T.
Your installation C3 will make Unite payments on your behalf via a purchasing card, though you must ensure budget limits are maintained at all times.Final attendance count is due at least 72 hours prior to your ON-BASE event and will be used to invoice meals planned at FSS facilities. If the actual number is greater than what was planned, you'll be invoiced for the greater number. Off-base attendance requirements may differ.
