Federal Office Of Surface Mining Accepting Acid Mine Drainage Watershed Grant Applications

The Federal Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement is now accepting applications for Not-For-Profit Acid Mine Drainage Watershed Cooperative Agreement Grants.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through August 31.
$1.5 million in funding is available to assist local 501(c)(3) status organizations and groups that undertake local acid mine drainage reclamation projects to improve the water quality of streams impacted by acid mine drainage.
WCAP is designed to be partnered with other funding sources to assist groups such as small watershed organizations to complete local AMD reclamation projects.
The funding priorities and technical focus for this announcement are to restore streams affected by AMD to a level that will support a diverse biological community and provide recreational opportunities for the public.
