About

The National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program (NCGMP) is the primary source of funds for the production of geologic maps in the United States and provides accurate geologic maps and three-dimensional framework models that help to sustain and improve the quality of life and economic vitality of the Nation and to mitigate natural hazards. 

NCGMP Funding

State (STATEMAP) and Education (EDMAP) funds are distributed through annual competitive grants programs that require matching funds from the applying States or universities. Federal (FEDMAP) funds also are distributed through a review process that includes a Program Council and external stakeholders such as other Federal agencies and the American Association for State Geologists (AASG).
