The REPI Reports to Congress provide information on REPI Program and other DOD efforts to conserve land and address threats to military readiness from incompatible development and environmental constraints.
The 2023 REPI Resilience Project Funding Guide is now available. This guide serves as a one-stop shop for installations and partners to learn about more than 25 federal and non-federal resilience and conservation programs that can support existing or new REPI installation resilience projects.
The guide provides a program calendar featuring key application opening dates and deadlines across all programs. Every program has a summary of funding opportunities, eligibility requirements, and application information. Six of the programs include detailed instructions for steps applicants need to take before applying, such as determining if the local community has an updated Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Installations and partners can leverage the guide to review funding opportunities for developing nature-based solutions near installations and ranges that preserve military missions, enhance habitats, increase climate resilience, and ensure military readiness. The guide also allows readers to quickly sort through programs based on multiple climate change threats, including Wildfire, Drought, Coastal Hazard, Riverine Flooding, and Land Degradation.

The 2022 Report on REPI Program Outcomes and Benefits to Military Mission Capabilities is now available. This report examines REPI program data submitted by the Military Services from FY 2003 through FY 2022 and quantitatively demonstrates the benefits of REPI projects that help safeguard military training, testing, and operations. Over 20 years of data analysis reveals that lands near installations and training areas, including installations in the Pacific region, are increasingly at risk of encroachment pressures threatening the Department's ability to conduct realistic training and testing vital to preparing for real-world combat. Through REPI projects, the Military Departments have a cost-effective solution for protecting vital training areas surrounding installations that allow for uninterrupted flight operations, testing, and radar and navigation activities.
Since FY 2003, DOD's REPI Program has secured $1.24 billion with over $1.13 billion in non-Department partner contributions to protect over 1.18 million acres of land at 120 locations across 35 states and territories to preserve key operational assets, infrastructure, and capabilities. In FY 2022 alone, REPI projects expended $13 million in REPI funding to preserve lands with active climate change threats. Of this $13 million, $10 million went toward wildfire mitigation activities and efforts designed to reduce installation risk to wildfires.

The focus for the 2023 REPI Challenge was on projects that limit development pressures, enhance military installation resilience, and relieve current or anticipated environmental restrictions on military testing, training, or operations in areas of strategic importance for DOD. The REPI Program was pleased to commit $24 million in funds, coupled with $50 million in partner contributions to thirteen projects benefiting 26 installations and their surrounding communities. More information on the REPI Challenge and the 2023 funded projects is available in the 2023 REPI Challenge fact sheet. To learn more about the thirteen REPI Challenge projects, read the full 2023 REPI Challenge package.
REPI partnerships with state or local governments or private conservation organizations are important in helping to protect military testing and training capabilities and sustaining the environment. The partnerships purchase easements from willing landowners to protect open space, working lands and valuable habitat. Preserving compatible land uses helps to avoid or mitigate restrictions on the military mission at Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force installations and range, while preserving ecological integrity on private land.
