Is the information that I input in my REAP application secure?

We have spent a considerable amount of time and money to protect the privacy of the information you provide to us in your application.

As you navigate the REAP system you will encounter “Security information” boxes. The boxes are indicators of how information is being handled. Please respond to the security information boxes by clicking ‘Continue’ or ‘OK’. This allows you to send information to us in a secure form.
