Funding Opportunity to Improve Access to Federally Owned Lands
The Eastern Federal Lands Access Program Project application period is open now through October 14, 2016.
Agencies with qualifying projects are encouraged to submit applications for consideration. A total of $8 Million is available in Louisiana. Proposed projects or studies must be located on a public highway, road, bridge, trail or transit system that is located on, is adjacent to, or provides access to Federal lands which is owned and operated by state, parish, town, township, tribal, or a municipality. The Federal Lands Access Program supplements state and local resources for public roads, transit systems, and other transportation facilities, with an emphasis on the improvement of access to federally owned high-use recreation sites and Federal economic generators. A 20% cash match is required of successful applicants. A map identifying Federal Lands in Louisiana is found at https://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/united_states/fed_lands_2003/louisiana_2003.pdf.
