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.
