Federal Highway Administration Eastern Federal Lands (EFL) is currently accepting Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) applications. The FY 2023-2026 Federal Lands Access Program Call for Projects will be conducted from September 15, 2021 through December 15, 2021.
Please explore the EFL FLAP website located at http://flh.fhwa.dot.gov/programs/flap/ and follow the links to the state FLAP website to download the application, review the state’s program goals and view the call for projects standard operating procedure and associated scoring criteria.
Proposed projects or studies must be located on a public highway, road, bridge, trail or transit system that is located on, is adjacent to, or provides access to Federal lands for which the facility title or maintenance responsibility is vested with a State, county, city, township, tribal, municipal, or local government. A minimum of 18.45% matching share of the project total is required for this program. Other Federal (non-title 23 or 49, with the exception of FLTP) funds may be used as match.
You are welcome to contact any of the Programming Decisions Committee members with your questions using the contact information contained in the website. We also invite you to view a brief presentation titled EFL FLAP Informational Presentation located on the EFL FLAP website referenced above that may be helpful. Also please find attached an EFL FLAP Fact Sheet with Tips for submitting a good application, for your use and outreach efforts.
EFL has found that a higher level of outreach at local levels has increased both the number and the quality of competitive applications submitted and ultimately recommended for project programming.
Thank-you for your interest in the FLAP program and we look forward to developing a program of projects for the future.
