Relocation Assistance Office

Welcome to Battle Creek, Michigan

Home of the Hart-Dole-Inouye (HDI) Federal Center

Welcome and congratulations on your assignment to the Southwest Michigan area. The Relocation Assistance Program provides a point-of-contact for questions that may come up before, during, and after a move. Our office will assist you, the military member, government employee, and your family. Let us help you from the beginning to the end of your transition!

We provide information on the destination area, such as housing, child care, spouse employment, cultural adaptation, and community orientation. This information is listed under "Resources".


There are tools on Military OneSource that will provide you with most of the information you will need for your move/transition. These tools are as follows:

  1. Military Installations contains information on more than 250 military installations worldwide.
  2. Plan My Move provides information about entitlements and benefits, points of contact, checklists, planning tools, education and employment.
  • The Community Information helps to compare communities throughout the United States by using several features: Cost of Living Reports, School Report Cards, Community Comparisons, a Salary Analyzer, Crime and Safety Reports, Community Explorer, and calculators.



  • Army OneSource provides comprehensive information on all Army Community Services and QOL support.


In conjunction with the Miltary OneSource tools, our Relocation Assistance Program website provides many local resources and information, such as child care, education, employment assistance, hospitals, military specific information, movers, real estate and rental, regional links, miscellaneous resources, TRICARE, utilities, vehicle and transportation, and relocation specific information. This information will not be included in the welcome package. If you do not have access to a computer, please let us know. We will gladly print off the materials for you and include them in your welcome package.
