NEW! AML/AMD Grant Program

The Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation (BAMR) is authorized through the United States Department of Interior’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement to issue grants to eligible applicants for the purpose of abandoned mine land (AML) reclamation and acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment or abatement. The Bureau will be accepting applications for projects that reclaim abandoned coal mines or address mine drainage from abandoned coal mines. For further information please see the AML/AMD program guidance linked here.

NOTE: For grant/subaward projects, the BAMR is unable to review, issue, or enforce Chapter 102, 105 and/or 106 permits. Any questions related to permitting requirements, for potential or selected AML/AMD Program project applications, should be directed to the appropriate county conservation district or Department of Environmental Protection regional office.
