Opportunity Title:

FY24 Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Resource Management- On Range


Department of the Interior

Bureau of Land Management

Opportunity Number:



The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages and protects wild horses and burros on 26.9 million acres of public lands across ten western states as part of its mission to manage public lands for multiple uses. The BLM created the Wild Horse and Burro Program to implement the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 and its goal is to manage healthy wild horses and burros on healthy public rangelands. Broadly, the law declares wild horses and burros to be “living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West” and stipulates that the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service have the responsibility to manage and protect herds in their respective jurisdictions within areas where wild horses and burros were found roaming in 1971. The on-range program manages for viable physically and behaviorally healthy wild horse and burro populations and maintains a thriving natural ecological balance with other resources and land uses.

The BLM is providing an opportunity to work with partners and in close collaboration with states, tribes, other federal agencies, and other organizations in support of its On-Range Activities. The On-Range Activities focus on maintaining AMLs in wild horse and burro HMAs and moving towards attaining a thriving natural ecological balance on BLM managed rangelands under a shared conservation stewardship approach, including field application of fertility control vaccines, monitoring land health, and/or work related to habitat resiliency. Proposals under this notice are required to address On-Range activities. NOTE: This opportunity does not include research activities related to wild horses and burros.

The following on-range activities are identified as priorities for funding:

  • Develop, organize and implement and integrated program for fertility control application in wild horse herds under the management of the BLM

  • Conducting monitoring of rangeland and animal health on public lands

  • Construction or reconstruction of range improvements to support wild horse and burro
