Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP)

REAP (Chapter 1607 of title 10, U.S. Code) is a benefit providing educational assistance to members of the reserve components - Selected Reserve and Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) - who are called or ordered to active service in response to a war or national emergency, as declared by the President or Congress.

  • The Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security (Coast Guard) determine eligibility. The Department of Veterans Affairs administers the program and pays benefits
  • Members of a reserve component who serve on active duty on or after September 11, 2001 under title 10, U.S.C., for at least 90 consecutive days under a contingency operation is eligible for REAP
  • May be entitled to receive up to 36 months of education benefits while continuing to serve in the Selected Reserve
  • Entitlement amounts payable under REAP are based on a percentage of the Montgomery GI BILL-Active Duty rate based on the number of continuous days served on active duty
