Department of Interior FY 2011 Budget Request


The President’s 2011 Budget provides $12 billion to DOI to achieve these goals, while reforming inefficient programs and generating mandatory savings of about $2.7 billion over 10 years.

DOI has set a goal to permit at least 9,000 megawatts of new solar, wind, and geothermal electricity generation capacity on DOI-managed lands by the end of 2011.

Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The Budget provides an increase of $106 million, or 31 percent, for LWCF programs in DOI that protect Federal lands for wildlife and public enjoyment and provide State grants for park and recreational improvements.

The public received about $10 billion in 2009 from fees, royalties, and other Federal payments related to oil, gas, coal, and other mineral development.
