The Department of Defense’s (DOD) Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) Program preserves military missions by supporting cost-sharing agreements between the Military Services, other federal agencies, state and local governments, and private conservation organizations to avoid land use conflicts near military installations, address environmental restrictions that limit military activities, and increase resilience to climate change.  The REPI Program is administered by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).  Read more in the REPI Frequently Asked Questions.

REPI News Roundup

The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service (DVIDS) reported that representatives from Marine Corps Base Hawaii's Environmental Compliance and Protection Division and the REPI Program gathered alongside elected officials and local leaders during a town hall to address mutual concerns regarding the impact of invasive species on the Windward side of Oahu.  The REPI Program is a vital component of the Marine Corps’ holistic encroachment mitigation strategy that can be used to combat detrimental impacts of invasive species and other environmental conditions that threaten MCBH’s ability to perform mission requirements that are critical for national defense.  This unique partnership program supports cost-sharing agreements between the Department of Defense, Marine Corps, state and local government, and private conservation organizations.  The REPI Program seeks to implement as many projects as possible, extending our resources to community partners and collaborating on shared natural resource challenges that can negatively impact the community or operational readiness.
