What is a RAB?
A RAB is a stakeholder group that meets on a regular basis to discuss environmental restoration at a specific property that is either currently or was formerly owned by DoD, but where DoD oversees the environmental restoration process. RABs enable people interested in the environmental cleanup at a specific installation to exchange information with representatives of regulatory agencies, the installation, and the community. While the general public can comment on DoD’s environmental restoration program, RABs offer a focused and interactive opportunity to participate in the environmental restoration process.

The Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center Restoration Advisory Board involves local community stakeholders in the environmental restoration process at the Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center either as a RAB community representative or through attendance at RAB meetings. This RAB provides community representatives the opportunity to influence cleanup decisions by providing input and discussing issues directly with the installation decision makers. Further, the RAB offers community representatives and the public the opportunity to share their questions, concerns, and ideas with agencies involved in the cleanup. The focus of the RAB is improving and maintaining public and environmental health.
