The US Department of Defense Rewards program has granted $ 900 (UGX 2,250,000) to three ex-LRA combatants for providing beneficial information towards the process of ending the LRA insurgency in Northern Uganda.

The Rewards Program is a US Government Initiative that offers incentives for information. It provides monetary, goods, or services rewards for information and other nonlethal assistance beneficial to force protection or operations against international terrorism.

Jose R. Reyes, a US Army official says that the reward to ex LRA fighters is meant to facilitate an end to the LRA insurgency through provision of monetary support to those who facilitated an end to the Joseph Kony led rebellion.

Reyes encouraged Remnants of the LRA to come out and live a peaceful life; he also encouraged members of the community to take part in the capture of the LRA leader Joseph Kony. He says those who succeed will equally be rewarded for providing civilian support in ending the LRA insurgency.
