New Guide Details Resilience Funding Opportunities

April 13, 2023

DOD’s Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration Program has released a first-of-its-kind guide to help installations find funding sources for resilience programs.

“Our office designed this guide to serve as a valuable resource for installations and on-the-ground partners to learn how to leverage funding from over 25 federal and non-federal resilience and conservation programs that can support existing or new REPI installation resilience projects,” REPI Program Director Kristin Thomasgard said in a press release.

The REPI Resilience Project Funding Guide includes a program calendar with key dates for funding opportunities available to installations and their partners.

The REPI Program helps preserve military missions by supporting cost-sharing agreements between the military services, other federal agencies, state and local governments, and private conservation organizations to avoid land use conflicts near military installations, address environmental restrictions that limit military activities, and increase resilience to climate change.
