Unite Program

Joint | Activities | Community


The Unite program provides Commanders with funding to initiate programs that will benefit all Airmen in their unit including assigned Air Force Active Duty, Reservists, Air National Guard and Civilians. Other Military Service members (Army, Navy or Marines) and Contractors are welcome to participate in the program but must pay their expenses.

Why Unite?

  • Increase espirit de corps, comradery, or moral
  • Promote interactions between unit members
  • Provide an opportunity for fun or relaxation
  • Reinforce peer, squadron, or AF corps values
  • Work on team-building exercise


Assigned Active Duty, Reserve, and APF/NAF Civilians.

Family members may participate after paying any applicable fees.

Payment Coordination

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 5 business days prior to your Unite event on or off the installations.  If the actual number is greater than what was planned, your unit will be responsible for the greater number.


  • Other service branches and contractors are welcome to participate, but they must pay any associated fees.

  • Family members are authorized funding, however more funds will not be supplied for the unit.  It’s up to the commander’s discretion.

  • Funds cannot be used to augment Holiday parties, Commanders Calls, trainings, banquets, dining in or dining outs, Change of Commands, promotion ceremonies, retirements, etc.

  • Funds cannot be used for alcohol, Cleaning (PPE) supplies, or prizes

  • Unite events require Commander’s signature and approval from the AF Services Activity (may take up to 21 days).

  • For guaranteed approval, a request must be submitted 3 weeks prior to the event date.  C3s will still submit the request under the 3 week guaranteed approval deadline.

  • Must spend and execute a Unite event by December 17th.
