Funding is available to assist local qualified not-for-profit organizations to begin actual construction projects to improve the water quality of streams impacted by acid mine drainage (AMD).

NOTICE: Currently, no funds have specifically been earmarked for projects in 2016 but OSM will accept applications. Should funds become available, OSM will award funds based on qualified applications.
