The Research and Technical Assistance (RTA) project provides data and analysis for dozens of defense impacted communities (click here for community locations) in order to track real-time changes in their local economies and housing markets. Because the needs of each defense community differ, we offer customized data, reports and maps for each community. This website is your one-stop shop for information about your community. To get started, please select from one of the links on the right side of your screen.
