Outdoor Industry Association today announced its support for the bicameral, bipartisan “Outdoors for All Act,” which would create a dedicated source of funding for outdoor recreation opportunities in urban and low-income communities. The legislation is sponsored by U.S. Senators Alex Padilla, D-Calif., and Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine. The House version of the bill is sponsored by U.S. Representatives Nanette Diaz Barragán, D-Calif., and Michael Turner, R-Ohio.

“Outdoor recreation provides countless benefits, from supporting mental and physical health to stimulating the local economy and creating new jobs,” said Lise Aangeenbrug, executive director of the Outdoor Industry Association. “Regardless of location, background, or income, all Americans deserve access to parks and green spaces within walking distance to their homes. Yet, more than 100 million Americans do not have that access today.

“This innovative proposal would prioritize federal funding for inclusive outdoor recreation programs in communities that have long been underserved, and increase health benefits and economic opportunities for those living in low-income and urban neighborhoods. We’re delighted to see this important, bipartisan bill introduced in Congress and look forward to working alongside lawmakers to see it enacted it into law.”
