AML/AMD Grant Program

The new AML/AMD Grant Program that began in the fall of 2022 will continue with three more application rounds in 2023. The Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation 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 AML reclamation and 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 during the following open application periods:

2023 Application Round 1 – March 6, 2023, through 11:59 p.m. April 28, 2023
2023 Application Round 2 – July 3, 2023, through 11:59 p.m. August 25, 2023
2023 Application Round 3 – October 2, 2023, through 11:59 p.m. December 2, 2023

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.
