    3. 3. PURPOSE • The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) created the Mine Map Grant (MMG) to provide funding to learning institutions and incorporated nonprofit organizations in Pennsylvania to: – Process mine maps and mine data into electronic formats that can be used in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other computer applications – And, in the initial solicitation of MMG applications, to encouraged applications by making every effort to distribute funds to all eligible applicants. “These grants create an important partnership between DEP and institutions of higher education, develop a skilled workforce for the energy sector, and continue to ensure a safe working environment for Pennsylvania’s miners.” Governor Tom Corbett
    4. 4. 2013 MMG Grantees The seven organizations that were awarded grants totaling $1.65 million are listed below with their funding amount. • Indiana University of Pennsylvania Research Institute, $484,631 • Eastern Pennsylvania Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation, $321,968 • Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, $299,534 • University of Pittsburgh, $225,000 • Harrisburg Area Community College, $122,101 • Saint Vincent College, $110,832 • California University of Pennsylvania, $85,934
    5. 5. Benefits • Providing mine maps in electronic form will improve the quality, quantity and delivery of mining information to the millions of residents of Pennsylvania's mining regions. • At the same time, the MMG provides an opportunity for learning institutions and nonprofits to train individuals in the use of the emerging geospatial technologies that will be integral to many computer operations, especially governmental operations that provide services and information to the residents of Pennsylvania. • The experience gained from creating geospatial elements of a geodatabase is applicable to almost any profession or business, (sales, marketing, engineering, medicine, logistics). The MMG will provide opportunities for internships and permanent employment with DEP and other government entities, especially the counties, with the grantees and with business and services throughout the private sector.
