One of the BLM's Eastern States (ES) highest priorities is to promote ecosystem health and one
of the greatest obstacles to achieving this goal is the rapid expansion of weeds across public
lands. These invasive plants can dominate and often cause permanent damage to natural plant
communities. If not eradicated or controlled, noxious weeds will continue to jeopardize the
health of public lands and to constrain the myriad activities that occur on them. This program
supports projects funded through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Section 40804 (b)
Ecosystem Restoration. This program supports projects funded through the Inflation Reduction
Act (IRA), Sections 50221 Resilience, 50222 Ecosystems Restoration and 50303 DOI. Funding Opportunity Goals1. Prevention, detection, and eradication of noxious weeds and
