DEP Accepting Applications For Mine Map Grant Program

Applications for the 2013 Mine Map Grant Program are now available from the Department of Environmental Protection.  The deadline for applications is March 15. (formal notice)

The MMG is a new, competitive grant program to establish 3-year grants that will provide funding to learning institutions and incorporated nonprofit organizations located in this Commonwealth to restore, preserve, inventory, scan, georeference and digitize mine maps and data.

Subject to the availability of funds, up to $1.65 million in grants will be provided. The minimal grant award will be $20,000.

Individual grant amounts will be based upon: the work identified in a proposal; a proposal's rating, which is based on the evaluation criteria established in the grant application rating analysis; and the availability of funds. Within practical administrative limits, efforts will be made to provide some funding to all eligible proposals.
