Unlike other branches of the military, whose business operations and family services are completely separate and independent entities, Marine Corps Community Services is a true ecosystem.
Revenue generated from MCCS activities aboard Camp Lejeune and New River is utilized to sustain MCCS Category “C” Programs (Marine Corps Exchanges, Lodging, Food & Beverage Services, Golf, Recreational Shooting, etc.) and augment Category “A” and “B” Programs (Marine & Family Programs, Semper Fit Programs).
Locally generated revenue also supports necessary support functions critical to MCCS operations. Examples of these support functions include Human Resources, Facilities and Maintenance, Purchasing, Accounting, Information Technologies, Marketing, and general administration.
Revenue from MCCS activities (Non Appropriated Funds, or NAF) is also invested in necessary renovations and projects, like the recent upgrade and expansion of the Inns of the Corps. Our local sales are directly tied to our ability to adequately provide and manage much needed resources to our local community.
