PAPO Sets Project Application Deadline


The Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) will accept applications for potential 2013 funding until Oct. 31.

The project application has been revised and the PAPO strategic plan goals and priorities have been updated to increase the number of submitted projects that specifically benefit mule deer, pronghorn and sage-grouse. Air quality projects will also be considered. Potential applicants are encouraged to visit www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/index.htm for more information about the PAPO.

All submitted applications will be reviewed and ranked by PAPO staff; however, final decisions on funding 2013 projects will be made by the PAPO Board of Directors at the May 2013 board meeting in Pinedale, Wyo. There is no guarantee that any submitted application will be funded.

The 2013 application, score sheet and guidelines are available at www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/index.htm. All project applications and any supporting documents must be submitted by email to egdecker@blm.gov by 5 p.m. on Oct. 31 to be considered for 2013 funding.

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.
