The Congress authorized funds to communities to expand facilities and services needed for new workers and families when the Trident submarine base becomes operational in the 1980's.

Under existing Federal programs, the Secretary of Defense provides financial aid to other departments and agencies for planning, construction, and/or subsidies of schools, roads, water and sewer systems, low-rent housing, recreation, and other facilities. Preliminary estimates included a total cost of about $204 million to finance Trident-related community impact costs. The Federal share was estimated to be about $120 million. Current planning lacks estimates of offsetting local revenue increases, has not fully considered possible population increases in other counties, and depends on certain assumptions and cost factors which should be reconsidered.
