The $50 million in the agreement mostly derives from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

The United States Forest Service announced that the White House signed a $50 million agreement with the National Wild Turkey Federation. The 20-year national master stewardship agreement is said to help address wildfires in the Western United States and promote healthy forests across the country. The $50 million comes from the President's infrastructure bill as well as regular agency appropriations and other sources.


Forest Service chief Randy Moore explained the significance of the agreement in saying, "This agreement reflects our strong, long-standing relationship with the National Wild Turkey Federation and its four decades of forest restoration work on national forests and grasslands. Larger wildfires, more frequent natural disasters, and other disturbances that continue to threaten the health of the nation's forests and grasslands, and the wildlife habitat they provide, means the work we do together is even more vital."
