The USGS anticipates funding another round of projects through the USGS
Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) in FY17. In
FY16, Federal agencies contributed over $11.5M to provide matching funds in
support of lidar acquisition projects submitted to the BAA. We anticipate
similar levels of activity in FY17. The FY17 BAA is expected to be released
through grants.gov and FedBizOpps (www.fbo.gov) in July 2016.  Public
webinars to share details and answer questions on the FY17 release are
scheduled for August 9th and 10th; details on these and other coordination
and outreach opportunities will be posted on http://nationalmap.gov/3DEP/.

Federal, State and Local stakeholders are actively utilizing Seasketch to
identify areas of overlapping interest in preparation for the upcoming
invites you to utilize the  Updated 3DEP Project Collector Tool
