The Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (EFLHD) has put out a Call for Projects for the Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) in Massachusetts for Federal Fiscal Years 2020 – 2022.
The Call for Projects application period opens July 16, 2018 and runs through October 15, 2018. An estimated total of $1M will be available for Massachusetts.
The purpose of the FLAP is to provide safe and adequate transportation access to and through Federal Lands for visitors, recreationists, and resource users. To that end, the applicant must be the Federal Lands facility owner, have maintenance responsibility, or must supply a letter from the facility owner/maintainer indicating the application is being submitted on their behalf. Project applications must be sponsored and/or supported by the appropriate Federal Land Management Agency (FLMA) unit whose access would be enhanced by the proposed action. Linked below is more information about the program, as well as the application. Please note that funding beyond 2020 is dependent on reauthorization of the Access Program by Congress.
EFLHD has asked that this announcement be circulated as widely as possible to help ensure a robust pool of applications. As such, please feel free to distribute any of the materials included below to cities and towns in order to assist in the outreach effort.
