Act Signed by the President
We are pleased to report that the Great American Outdoors Act was signed by the President on August 4, 2020 so it is now officially a law.
Funding is provided in perpetuity for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which protects public lands and supports acquisition of nearby areas with important conservation value. It also gives funding to the National Parks Service with money dedicated to deferred maintenance projects and for high priority infrastructure projects.
This “Legislation represents a historic victory for parks and will authorize billions of dollars to fund critical maintenance projects and conserve vulnerable lands.”
