In Fiscal Year 2006, Congress set an annual reporting requirement for the Department of Defense’s partnering activities under the authority of Title 10 of the United States Code § 2684a. These reports 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 2021 Report on REPI Program Outcomes and Benefits to Military Mission Capabilities is now available. This report summarizes over 16 years of planning and execution data submitted by the Military Services to quantify the extent of known or potential land use conflicts, solutions to address these conflicts, and overall investments in and benefits to military capabilities.
Our analysis demonstrates that lands near installations and training areas, including installations in the Pacific region, are increasingly at risk to development incompatible with military activities. As the report shows, protecting such lands through the REPI program is more cost-effective than settling for test and training workarounds, replacing compromised assets, or relocating missions.
While traditional efforts focused on incompatible development and natural resource management have long been the focus of the program, REPI partnerships now have the opportunity to utilize funds to improve installation resilience that address potential threats from climate change and extreme weather events. This report places a strong focus on existing resilience efforts within the program and the benefits that REPI installations are already experiencing from these projects.

The focus for the 2021 REPI Challenge was on projects that promote land conservation or management activities that limit incompatible development, enhance military installation resilience to climate change and extreme weather events, or relieve current or anticipated environmental restrictions at locations hosting key capabilities of strategic importance to the Department of Defense.
The REPI Program was pleased to commit $15.6 million in program funds that will be coupled with nearly $21.6 million in partner contributions to seven projects benefitting 12 installations and their surrounding communities. More information on the REPI Challenge and the 2021 funded projects is available in the 2021 REPI Challenge fact sheet.
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.
