BLM Donates Computers to White Pine County School District


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District Tuesday donated 38 computers and related equipment to the White Pine County School District.

The donation was made possible through the Computers for Learning program (CFL), which encourages agencies, to the extent permitted by law, to transfer computers and related peripheral equipment excess to their needs directly to schools and some educational nonprofit organizations.  The CFL program specifically matches the computer needs of schools and educational nonprofit organizations with excess equipment in federal agencies. 

The CFL program’s goal is to make modern computer technology an integral part of every classroom so that every child has the opportunity to be educated to his or her full potential.  To learn more about the CFL program go to http://computersforlearning.gov/.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
