Project Proposal Packet

*Please review the Checklist for the documents that must be included with the Proposal Packet submittal. In addition to the Application and Signature Forms, applicants must include a detailed cost estimate, photos, and a map.

It is strongly recommended that you right click on each link and then (click) 'Save as' to download the file, and do not open them in your browser. Opening them in your browser may prevent functionality. When the download has completed, open your file directly from Adobe Acrobat 10 or Adobe Reader 10. This should enable full functionality of the forms. It is recommended you test this out (test download, fill-in, and save) immediately. If anything is not working correctly please contact to get assistance with troubleshooting.

ATTENTION APPLICANTS: Due to heightened IT security requirements, the Federal Lands Access Program will no longer be accepting ZIP files. Other file types (e.g. PDF, JPEG, etc.) can be received by simply attaching as part of your Application Packet submittal email(s). Updated Submittal Instructions to account for these new requirements have been provided below.

Updated Submittal Instructions:

Step 1. Save your form as PDF to your computer, with file name similar to: CA FLAP APP 2021 ‹PROJECT NAME›

  1. Check that all fields have been completed and that all your work has saved properly prior to e-mailing your application.

Step 2. Attach all additional files:

  1. Review the checklist you completed on page 1 and attach all photos, maps project estimates, and forms requiring signatures.
  2. Maximum total for all files is 15MB. To accommodate large attachment sizes, we encourage sending multiple emails referencing the volume of the email(s) in the subject line as seen in Step 3.

Step 3. E-mail your completed Project Proposal Packet including form and all attachments to, using the subject: CA FLAP APP 2021 ‹PROJECT NAME› 1 of XX (where XX references the total number of emails in Project Proposal Packet submittal)
