Grants to USA conservation groups and local and state agencies for land conservation projects near military installations. Applicants must contact program staff and submit a pre-proposal prior to applying. Funding is intended to limit incompatible land development near military installations that would negatively impact the military mission.
The primary focus of this year’s REPI Challenge will be projects that will help make key mission capabilities of strategic importance to DoD more resilient to climate change and severe weather events (e.g., coastal and inland flooding, sea level rise, drought, increased wildfires, thawing permafrost). Of the total $40 million available, up to $25 million may be allocated toward these climate resilient projects (Focus Area A). The remaining $15 million may be allocated toward projects that promote land conservation or management activities limiting incompatible development or relieving current or anticipated environmental restrictions (Focus Area B). Competitive proposals will demonstrate actions that improve military readiness by protecting investments to assets and platforms in support of one or more of the key mission capabilities. Key mission capabilities may include one or more of the following:
Focus Area A (Climate Resilience Projects): The 2022 REPI Challenge will make investments for planning, design, and implementation of natural infrastructure improvements outside DoD installations and ranges that improve the resilience of military capabilities to impacts of climate change and extreme weather events, including storm surge, flooding, sea-level rise, wildfire, drought, and permafrost thawing. For further details, see https://www.repi.mil/Portals/44/Documents/REPI_Challenge/2022_REPI%20Challenge%20RFP_FINAL_20210910.pdf#page=4.
Focus Area B (Incompatible Development and Habitat Conservation Projects): The 2022 REPI Challenge will make investments for projects that limit incompatible development in the vicinity of DoD installations and ranges or relieve current or anticipated environmental species restrictions in support of key mission capabilities of strategic importance. The REPI program will seek projects that leverage greater economies of scale by protecting large parcels of land or habitat in priority areas already targeted by DoD installations in a manner that benefits the mission of the installation by protecting, sustaining, enhancing, or facilitating optimum range and installation operations.
