Welcome to the Department of Defense Legacy Tracker

In 1990, Congress passed legislation establishing the Legacy Resource Management Program to provide financial assistance to the Department of Defense (DoD) efforts to preserve our natural and cultural heritage. The program assists DoD in protecting and enhancing resources while supporting military readiness. A Legacy project may involve regional ecosystem management initiatives, habitat preservation efforts, archaeological investigations, invasive species control, Native American consultations, and/or monitoring and predicting migratory patterns of birds and animals.

Three principles guide the Legacy program: stewardship, leadership, and partnership. Stewardship initiatives assist DoD in safeguarding its irreplaceable resources for future generations. By embracing a leadership role as part of the program, the Department serves as a model for respectful use of natural and cultural resources. Through partnerships, the program strives to access the knowledge and talents of individuals outside of DoD.
The Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) is seeking proposals for demonstrations of innovative Environmental, and Installation Energy and Water technologies as candidates for FY 2017 funding. Pre-proposals are due April 5, 2016 by 2 p.m. ET.

ESTCP Director and Deputy Director will conduct an online seminar “ESTCP Funding Opportunities” on February 19, 2016, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET.
