National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program


Program Funding

State (STATEMAP) and Education (EDMA) funds are distributed through annual competitive grants programs that require matching funds from the applying States or universities. Federal (FEDMAP) funds also are distributed through a review process that includes external stakeholders such as other Federal agencies and the American Association for State Geologists. Although the National Geologic Mapping Act authorizes up to $64 million for the Program each year, Congress has enacted between $20 and $30 million. The distribution of these funds among the three components is determined by a formula.
