The Fort Campbell Strong Defense Alliance, Inc. (CSDA) was the result of a collaborative planning effort that began in 2015 in response to the inactivation of the 159th Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB) at Fort Campbell in 2014, and in 2015 the 4th Brigade Combat Team was also deactivated resulting in a total loss of 5803 Soldiers from Fort Campbell. This planning initiative was funded by a grant from the Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA).

growth in the six-county region surrounding Fort Campbell including:

Stewart County, Tennessee
Robertson County, Tennessee
