This is a nationwide investment that will take place over five years and will serve rural communities, as well as making national forests and grasslands easier to access.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service, the Biden-Harris Administration has announced over $65 million in funding to help improve water quality, trails, roads, and fish habitats across the United States. The funding is split into two separate programs, the new Collaborative Aquatic Landscape Restoration Program and the Legacy Roads and Trails Program, that has existed since 2008 and is already successful.


Forest Service Chief, Randy Moore, applauded the funding, saying, "For decades, our forests lacked sufficient maintenance investments due to the escalating cost of climate change driven wildfires and other natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and flooding. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is investing billions to improve our national forests and our public facilities for all to enjoy. The Biden Administration's investments are helping to address our most critical needs so we can better steward the national forests and grasslands that provide so many public benefits."
