About the Sate Partnership Program:

The National Guard State Partnership Program (SPP) is a United States Department of Defense program managed by the National Guard that links U.S. States with partner countries around the world for the purpose of supporting the security cooperation objectives of the geographic Combatant Commands (CCMDs). By linking U.S. states with designated partner countries, the SPP aims to promote access, enhance military capabilities, improve interoperability and enhance the principles of responsible governance. Furthermore, the SPP aims to support several areas of potential interest to the US Congress, such as:

  •     Helping prevent failed states and creating stable regions
  •     Improving the capabilities of partner nations to protect their citizens
  •     Strengthening relationships to facilitate access and interoperability
  •     Improving cultural awareness and skills among U.S. military personnel
  •     Fostering the integration of reserve and active component forces into a "total force"

All SPP activities are coordinated through the geographic Combatant Commanders, the U.S. Ambassadors' country teams, the partner State, and other agencies as appropriate, to ensure that National Guard support is tailored to meet both U.S. and country objectives. The unique civil-military nature of the National Guard allows active participation in a wide range of security cooperation activities, such as:

  •     Emergency management and disaster response
  •     Border and port security
  •     Leadership and NCO development
  •     Medical capacities
  •     Economic security
  •     Natural resource protection
  •     Peacekeeping operations
  •     Counter trafficking
  •     Counter proliferation
  •     Counter terrorism
