Funding Range:
The DoD Legacy Resource Management Program (Legacy Program) provides funding to high
priority conservation projects that foster mission sustainment while promoting long-term
stewardship of our nation's natural and cultural heritage. All projects must address at least one of
the Areas of Emphasis (AOEs) and support the mission-relevant priorities that form the basis of
DoD's Natural and Cultural Resources Programs. Proposals must identify any relationship
between the proposed work and other similar efforts that are currently underway or completed.
All proposals are evaluated for:
• relevance to military mission objectives, including clear articulation of direct benefits to
testing, training, and operational activities;
• anticipated increase in program efficiencies from management improvements and cost
savings (i.e., current costs vs. projected costs under a new framework described in dollars
and/or time and effort) to the Military Services for implementing proposed solutions;
• the project's strategy to engage partners, leverage resources, and coordinate efforts with
other agencies or organizations;
• the transferability, applicability, and ability to implement project results beyond the scope
of the proposed effort;
• significance and applicability to more than one Military Service; and
• significance and applicability at an ecosystem, regional, or other broad scale.
