Chapter 1607: Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP)


Back to main page | Benefits | Forms | Resources | Stipend rates | W.A.V.E.


Educational program for active members of the Selected Reserve called to active duty in response to a contingency operation declared by the President or Congress. The Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security (Coast Guard) determine who’s eligible for chapter 1607. The Department of Veterans Affairs administers the program and pays benefits.


Members of the Selective Reserve may be eligible for Chapter 1607 after serving 90 consecutive days on active duty for a contingency operation. The Chapter 1607 benefit pays a percentage of the chapter 30 three-year or more rate based on the number of continuous service days on active duty: 90 days but less than 1 year pays 40%, 1 year but less than 2 years pays 60%, and 2 years pays 80% payment of the three-year rate.
