Bureau of Land Management opens nominations for funding from the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act
LAS VEGAS – Today, the Bureau of Land Management is opening the nomination period for Round 19 project proposals to be funded under the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act. The nomination period closes Nov. 5, 2021.
“The Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act has improved the quality of life for residents across Nevada and portions of both Arizona and California,” said Angelita Bulletts, Southern Nevada District Manager. “The Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act provides recreation opportunities for visitors, enhanced resources on public lands and contributes to establishing the Las Vegas Valley as a world-renowned tourist destination. We look forward to reviewing the many nominations we expect to receive for this 19th round of funding.”
Local governmental entities may seek Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act funds for parks, trails and natural areas in portions of Carson City and Clark, Lincoln and White Pine counties and for habitat enhancement and outreach in Clark County. Federal agencies may seek funds for capital improvements, conservation initiatives and restoration projects in eastern Nevada, and funding for acquisition of environmentally sensitive land statewide. Federal, state and other agencies may seek Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act funds for hazardous fuels reduction in the Lake Tahoe Basin, the Carson Range and the Spring Mountain Range.
Since land sales within the Las Vegas Valley began under Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act, almost $4 billion has been generated for improving communities by restoring habitat, reducing hazardous fuels and much more. Almost 1,400 projects have been approved for funding by the Secretary of the Interior.
