Request Processing

It is recommended that performance requests be submitted a minimum of 60 working days in advance of an event, although a greater amount of time is desirable. In the course of processing a request, it could take as many as four weeks to determine if support can be provided.

Funding

Requesters should be aware that Armed Forces participation in public events may only be provided at no additional cost to the government. A sponsor must pay, when necessary, for non-local transportation, lodging, and meals in order to bring a performing unit to locations outside the National Capital Region.
