This program is provided through the U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) Program Support Directorate. The Abandoned Mine Land Economic Revitalization (AMLER) Program provides grants to the six Appalachian States with the highest amounts of unfunded abandoned mine land (AML) issues and to the three tribes with approved reclamation programs. State/Tribal AML Programs, in consultation with state, Tribal, and local economic and community development authorities, develop eligible projects with a nexus to AML land and water reclamation and economic/community development. The AMLER Program is an opportunity for local communities and states/Tribes to collaboratively return impacted areas to productive reuse and achieve the economic and community development goals identified for the community and/or region.
