The Department of Military Affairs consists of the military forces of the state of Minnesota, the Office of the Adjutant General, civilians employed for administrative and maintenance services, and state owned military installations. The department’s total state budget is about $36 million.

The federal government provides additional direct funding for other military operations in the state, such as Camp Ripley operations.
