AML/AMD Grant Program

The Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) and Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) Grant Program will have three application rounds in 2024. 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:

2024 Application Round 1 – February 19, 2024 through 11:59 p.m. April 5, 2024
2024 Application Round 2 – June 3, 2024 through 11.59 p.m. July 19, 2024
2024 Application Round 3 – September 23, 2024 through 11:59 p.m. November 8, 2024

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.
