Possible uses and use restrictions...

State/Indian Reclamation Program (SIRP) (Project Grants): Project grants are restricted to lands and water mined or affected by mining processes that occurred prior to August 3, 1977, (and certain post-1977 lands and waters beginning 10/1/91) and are defined as "eligible lands." Eligible lands include coal mining and related processes as well as noncoal mining and related processes. A State with an approved regulatory program, eligible lands and active coal mining operations contributing to the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund may submit a State reclamation plan to the Office of Surface Mining for approval. (Note: For Indian tribes, regulatory program approval is not a condition of participation in the reclamation program.) Subsidence Insurance Program Grants: The subsidence insurance program grant, which is limited to $3 million, provides funds to establish, administer, and operate a self-sustaining, individual State-administered program to insure private property against damages caused by land subsidence resulting from underground coal mining.
