DoD actively involves local communities, tribes, and government agencies in its cleanup efforts. Through open communication and cooperation with regulators, DoD works to expedite the cleanup process and ensure that human health and the environment are protected.

Our collaborative relationships with American Indians and Alaska Natives are central to our efforts to address environmental impacts on Indian lands. 

Through the Defense and State Memorandum of Agreement (DSMOA) program, DoD provides states and territories with funding to reimburse their contributions to the DERP at its installations and properties.

The Department works with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Facilities Restoration and Reuse Office (FFRRO), to help ensure effective and timely cleanups of federal facilities.

DoD established the Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) program to incorporate community participation into the DERP.
