Twenty-one (21) applications were submitted, with a request total of over $30 million.

Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP)
The Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) was established in 23 U.S.C. 204 to improve transportation facilities that provide access to, are adjacent to, or are located within Federal lands. FLAP in Virginia is administered by Eastern Federal Lands (EFL).
Projects are selected by the Virginia Programming Decision Committee (PDC), which is comprised of a representative of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), a representative of the Virginia Department of Transportation, and a representative for local government. The PDC requests project applications through a call for projects. The frequency of the calls is established by the EFL & PDC.
The federal share for the Access Program in this call-for-projects has been changed to 100 percent based on amended program requirements established by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
