Instruction Memorandum No. 2011-074
To: All State Directors
From: Assistant Director, Minerals and Realty Management
Subject: Fiscal Year 2013 Land and Water Conservation Fund Project Submissions
Program Area: Land Acquisition.
Purpose: This Instruction Memorandum (IM) requests your submission of Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) project funding proposals to be forwarded to the Washington Office Division of Lands, Realty and Cadastral Survey (WO-350). Program guidance and submission formats are attached. With the volume of competing workloads this request is being forwarded in advance of the formal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Strategic Budget Plan packet to provide ample time to prepare submissions. Submissions are limited to eligible priorities (listed in Attachment 1). Submission information must not be released to external sources, as it may become part of the FY 2013 President’s Budget.
Policy/Action: Submission of annual proposals for LWCF land acquisition funding must be consistent with the LWCF FY 2013 Submission Process. A completed narrative, fact sheet, questionnaire, and representative maps must accompany your nomination. Submission of digital photographs is strongly encouraged.
Timeframe: Submissions are due to WO-350 by April 15, 2011, without exception.
Budget Impact: Minimal.
Background: Each year the BLM participates in a Department of the Interior strategic budget planning exercise for the upcoming FY. A part of this exercise is to develop funding targets for the land acquisition program and to identify the individual properties within each eligible project area to be incorporated into the upcoming fiscal year’s President’s Budget. Funding proposals requested in this directive will initiate a selection process followed by funding recommendations presented to the Director.
Manual/Handbook Sections Affected: This IM transmits interim policy that will be incorporated into H-2100-1, Acquisitions, during the next revision. This policy is intended to be inserted in Chapter 4, Section 4A.
Coordination: Development of the BLM’s annual LWCF land acquisition funding request is managed by the Division of Lands, Realty and Cadastral Survey.
