Fort Buchanan Las Colinas Army Housing Management Transition Public Notice 

The Sustainment and Resiliency Division (SRD) plans, programs, and resources Army Reserve-funded installation services, establishing policies and guidance as they relate to sustainable and resilient facility operations.

State-of-the-art, sustainable, and resilient facilities, lands, and infrastructure that contribute to a capable, combat-ready, and lethal Federal Reserve Force.

Resilience enables the Army Reserve to anticipate, recover, and adapt to changing conditions. Secure and reliable assets at Army Reserve facilities are vital to perform its mission and support global operations. The SRT partners with Army Reserve-funded installations and RDs to facilitate the Integrated Strategic and Sustainability Planning (ISSP) process, supporting the creation of long-term holistic strategic plans. Through facilitating strategic planning with a buildable process and providing tailored communications, custom training, and awards support, SRT helps strengthen the Army Reserve’s alignment with a culture focused on warfighter readiness and resilience.

The Army Reserve Energy & Water Program’s priority is to ensure available, reliable, and quality power and water to sustain critical missions. Our energy and water initiatives are united in effort—enabling the Army Reserve to execute a holistic strategy that enhances readiness and resilience while improving the operational capabilities of Soldiers.

The Army Reserve Environmental Program champions environmental stewardship through legal compliance. It enables senior leaders to make the best possible decisions in support of Army Reserve missions while bolstering the ecosystems upon which military training and operations depend.

We enable our facilities to work—on any given day, in the face of any given challenge, we enable Army Reserve facilities to operate safely and effectively with the resources they need to achieve their mission. Through the Army Reserve Solid Waste Program, logistics and engineering funding, or infrastructure analytics to articulate requirements-driven decisions, our Services Branch is here to support a wide range of essential programs.

We believe we have a special duty to our communities to do things the right way. We also believe that Soldiers, Civilian employees, and our communities have a personal responsibility to implement conservation and resilience efforts. Everyone is vulnerable to the risks that drive the Army Reserve’s focus on long-term sustainability. Whether natural disasters or cyberattacks, personal resilience is just as important as military resilience.
