Building Unit Cohesion Through FUN!
To support Squadron CC/CL’s in creating recreational, team building and unit cohesive events, maximize the use of FSS facilities, measure impact and provide maximum flexibility. This program can be used to:
Unite events are classified into three different categories:
FSS related events should be considered first as they are pre-approved, easy to implement and keep funds on the installation.
Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create UDPs that capitalize on opportunities available in the local area. UDPs require prior approval and may take up to 30 days if the event takes place off-base.
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.
CY23 Allocation per person

APF (Appropriated) dollars are designated to pay or offset participation cost. Unite programs must have BOTH a recreational aspect and a unit-cohesive aspect.
UNITE funds CAN'T be used to augment holiday parties, non unit-cohesion events, squadron trainings and meetings, equipment purchases, or prizes.
Unite funds can’t be combined with other federal funds such as unit enhancement or SM&W funds.
Commanders will appoint a squadron/unit Unite POC, in writing, to the installation C3.
The Unite program is designed to support all Air Force and Space Force Active Duty, Reservist, Guard Members, and Civilians (GS and NAF) assigned to their unit. Unite funds can be used to support recreation/unit cohesion through squadron wide events and through flight or shop level events.
Spouses and Dependents are eligible to use Unite funding with written approval from Squadron/Unit Commander.
