Background
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Nevada (NV) manages archaeological and historic sites, artifact collections, places of traditional cultural importance to Native Americans and other communities, and paleontological resources that occur on federal lands in the state of Nevada. Collectively, these “heritage resources” represent thousands of years of human occupation, and millions of years of the earth’s natural history. The BLM Cultural Heritage and Paleontology Programs coordinate management, preservation, education and outreach efforts, economic opportunities, and public uses of a fragile, nonrenewable scientific record that represents an important component of America’s heritage.

Grant Details

The goals include building a meaningful conservation stewardship legacy through expanding recreation opportunities on public lands, ensuring meaningful consultation and self-determination for Tribes, enhancing visitor experience on public lands by better meeting infrastructure and maintenance needs, eliminating unnecessary steps and duplicative reviews while maintaining rigorous environmental standards. The program supports projects funded through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Sections 40601 and 40806 as well as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), Sections 50221 Resilience, 50222 Ecosystems Restoration and 50303 DOI.

Additional Info
Individuals and For-Profit Organizations are ineligible to apply for awards under this NOFO.This program NOFO does not support entities hiring interns or crews under the Public Lands Corps Act of 1993.
