Relocation Assistance Program

Starting a new job and moving to a new city can be a challenging experience. Because everyone is uprooted during a move, the Relocation Assistance Program is here to help every member of the family make a smooth transition to Columbus. Allow the DSCC MWR Office to introduce you to Columbus and our central Ohio communities. Some examples of our relocation planning and referral services are as follows:

  • Regional information and community orientation packages
  • Temporary housing and nearby lodging option
  • Home finding information and referrals
  • Up-to-date housing market information
  • School and community information
  • Household goods shipment and storage referrals
  • Destination and settling-in information
  • Moving with children/elders/pets
  • Stress management as it relates to relocation
  • Spouse employment job search referrals
  • Local arts, cultural events, festivals and attractions
  • DLA Life Connections, a work/life program

We think you will agree Columbus is a wonderful place to live with everything it has to offer – Outstanding schools, higher education and research institutions, medical facilities, cultural opportunities and recreation and park systems are among the best, and contribute greatly to our quality of living…all important aspects to the meaning of “home.” To help you get started, check out our moving checklist for an easier transition.

Whether you are joining or leaving the DSCC family, the Relocation Assistance Program is available to assist you in any way possible. Welcome to Columbus!
