The Department of Defense (DOD)’s REPI Program is a key tool for combating encroachment that can limit or restrict military training, testing, and operations. The REPI Program protects these military missions by helping remove or avoid land-use conflicts near installations and addressing regulatory restrictions that inhibit military activities. 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

Globe Newswire (Washington, DC) reports that the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) joined the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOOA), the Department of Defense (DOD), and private sector partners in providing more than $136 million to support 88 natural infrastructure projects in 29 states and territories.  The grants awarded through NFWF's National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) will leverage more than $94 million in matching contributions to generate a total conservation impact of $230 million.  The seven NCRF projects that received DOD funding protect critical Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy training missions across eight strategically important installations.  "Through the NCRF, DOD partners are leveraging $15 million in REPI Program funding coupled with nearly $7 million in NOAA funding to enhance installation resilience to sea level rise, storm surge, and other coastal climate change impacts.  By supporting NCRF projects, DOD can promote interagency collaboration and develop new mutually beneficial partnerships to meet shared mission priorities," said Mr. Paul Cramer, Performing the Duties of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy, Installations, and Environment.
