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

The Conservation Fund (Atlanta, GA) reports that Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield and the Georgia-Alabama Land Trust recently announced the protection of 3,800 acres along the Altamaha River that will preserve a corridor of undeveloped land within Fort Stewart’s Army Compatible Use Buffer (ACUB). A working forest conservation easement funded by the Department of Defense's REPI Program ensures that the property will remain protected from any development that could hinder training operations while supporting sustainable timber harvesting and providing wildlife habitat, recreation, and climate benefits. Larry Carlile, Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield’s ACUB Program Manager shared, “Incompatible development is a real threat to the ability of many military installations to train to standard. Fortunately, we have strong partnerships here that ensure our borders and our neighbors' adjacent lands are in harmony with the military mission. We could never have protected Beards Creek Forest without the support of REPI funds and funding provided by our partners.”
