Undersecretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly wrote to the NC Department of Commerce to express his “personal appreciation and gratitude for North Carolina’s continued outstanding support of our men and women in uniform and their missions in North Carolina.”  Secretary Modly’s letter acknowledged the $3 million grand appropriated by the General Assembly.  An additional $2 million was appropriated for FRC East by the General Assembly for fiscal year 2018-2019.  ACT expects the details on the $2 million to be set out in a forthcoming letter.

Secretary Modly informed FRC East’s Commanding Officer that the “funds will be used to support the proposed F-35B Vertical Lift Fan Processing Center projects” at FRC East.
