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 2020 Report on REPI Program Outcomes and Benefits to Military Mission Capabilities is now available. This report summarizes over 15 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.
The analysis demonstrates that lands near installations and training areas are increasingly at risk of converting 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 and recently modernized assets with new construction, or relocating missions.
Fortunately, the REPI program is capable of creating such significant value for the DoD mission because it benefits from the dedicated support and innovative solutions from so many partners. Together, we will continue to preserve and enhance mission capabilities in support of national defense.
In 2020, the REPI Challenge focused on innovative projects that limit incompatible development, enhance military installation resilience, and/or relieve current or anticipated environmental restrictions on military testing, training, or operations at locations hosting key capabilities outlined in the National Defense Strategy.
In 2020 REPI program awarded $17.1 million in program funds to be coupled with over $142 million in partner contributions to implement seven projects. By spreading funding across these seven projects, the 2020 REPI Challenge will be able to contribute to initiatives benefitting 11 installations and their communities across the country. More information on the REPI Challenge and the 2020 award is available in the 2020 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.
