Abandoned Mine Land and Acid Mine Drainage Grants – Round 2 Now Open 

The state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is now accepting applications for Round 2 of funding for the Abandoned Mine Land (AML) and Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) Grant Program. Townships, councils of governments, and municipal authorities are eligible to apply through the Commonwealth’s Electronic Single Application through August 25, 2023. 

Eligible projects must reclaim or enhance AML sites posing a threat to the environment and/or public health and safety. Sites must be determined to be eligible by the Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation, entered into AML inventory systems, and, in most cases, associated with a coal mine that was abandoned prior to August 3, 1977. For AML/AMD grant program guidance and application instructions, please visit DEP’s website. Questions can be directed to RA-EPAMGrantProgram@pa.gov or (717) 783-2267.
