In addition to basic training, the post has other missions as well. While some military installations have experienced downsizing and closure in past years, Fort Jackson has added several new schools and training institutions since 1995 including the U.S. Army Soldier Support Institute, the U.S. Army Chaplains Center and School, and the Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment. Within the last three years new projects included a Post Exchange complex, an Emergency Services Center and a Naval Reserve Center. A $4.5 million family water park opened in the summer of 2004.
The fort has a significant economic impact on the local area. Annual expenditures by Fort Jackson exceed $716.9 million for salaries, utilities, contracts and other services. In addition, over 100,000 family members visit the Midlands area each year to attend basic training graduation activities.
