About the Bureau of Land Management

The BLM, an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior, manages more land — 261 million surface acres — than any other federal agency. The BLM’s multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. BLM Website

Land and Water Conservation Fund

Created by Congress in 1964, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) provides funding to federal, state and local governments to purchase lands for open space and recreation purposes. The LWCF uses off-shore oil lease receipts to pay for land purchases, authorizing up to $900 million each year.
