Eastern Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP)

The Federal Lands Access Program was established to improve transportation facilities that provide access to, are adjacent to, or are located within Federal lands. The Access Program supplements state and local resources for public roads, transit systems, and other transportation facilities, with an emphasis on high-use recreation sites and economic generators. Eligible project activities include: capital improvements, enhancements, surface preservation, transit, planning, research and safety.

FLAP projects require matching funds of 20% of the total estimated project cost.

Projects are selected by a Programming Decision Committee (PDC) established in each state. The PDCs request project applications through a call for projects. The frequency of the call for projects is established by the PDC.
