Reserve Educational Assistance Program (Chapter 1607)

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2016 ended REAP on November 25, 2015. The Post-9/11 GI Bill in many ways has replaced REAP because it also provides educational assistance benefits for Reserve and National Guard members called to active duty on or after September 11, 2001, and in many cases provides a greater benefit than REAP.
