Grants to USA conservation groups, tribes, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and individuals for land conservation projects near military installations. Applicants must contact program staff and submit a pre-proposal prior to applying. Funding is intended to limit incompatible land development near military installations that would negatively impact the military mission.
The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) Program may provide funding for land conservation, improvement, or management activities that limit incompatible development in the vicinity of DoD installations and ranges; enhance military installation resilience to climate change or extreme weather events; or relieve current or anticipated environmental restrictions in support of key mission capabilities of strategic importance. Additional consideration will be given to those projects that leverage multiple authorities to accomplish project goals. Selected projects will demonstrate their ability to preserve and/or enhance key mission capabilities of strategic importance to the Department of Defense.
The REPI Program's primary mission is to remove or avoid land-use conflicts near installations, address regulatory restrictions, and improve resilience to current or projected climate change impacts that may inhibit military training, testing, and operations. The REPI Program once again anticipates an increased level of funding for the FY 2023 REPI Challenge and will be able to expand the focus on projects that will make key mission capabilities of strategic importance more resilient to climate change and severe weather events as well as continue to support projects that promote land conservation, improvement, or management activities that limit incompatible development in the vicinity of DoD installations and ranges. The REPI Program is a cost-effective tool available to DoD and its partners to protect the significant investments funded by taxpayer resources to ensure the viability of these key mission capabilities for decades into the future. Key mission capabilities may include one or more of the following:
