OSMRE will be distributing approximately $725 million annually for 15 years, beginning in FY2022. Eligible States and Tribes will receive these annual BIL AML grant distributions for the remaining years, subject to any required adjustments. Eligible States and Tribes will receive FY 2022 funds by the end of the 3rd Quarter of Fiscal Year 2022. Eligible States and Tribes will be able to apply annually for the amount specified in each Fiscal Year BIL grant distribution.
Funding to administer a program to provide grants to eligible States and Tribes to clean up abandoned coal mine sites and related problems.
Eligible uses include: Cleaning up abandoned coal mine sites and related problems, as specified in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, that pose a threat to public health and safety, and restoring land and water resources degraded by the effects of past coal mining, and addressing emergency projects. Those sites and related problems must be entered into the Office of Surface Mining and Reclamation’s abandoned mine land inventory system and be associated with a coal mine that was abandoned prior to August 3, 1977.Unlike traditional Abandoned Mine Land funding that has been distributed in the past, and will continue to be distributed annually through at least Fiscal Year 2035, funding under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law may be used to design, build, operate, maintain, and rehabilitate acid mine drainage facilities that are not in conjunction with a Priority 1 or Priority 2 site. However, States and Tribes may not place a portion of their Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding into acid mine drainage set-aside accounts.
