The Biden Administration is planning to provide $2.8 billion for the repairs and improvements on federal land, according to a statement.

A large portion of the funds provided by the Great American Outdoors Act will be used for maintenance and other improvements to national parks, including wildlife refuges and recreation areas, said the joint statement from the departments of Interior and Agriculture.

The law will also grant the Land and Water Conservation Fund a budget of $900 million per year to ensure public access to public lands while also protecting wildlife and watersheds.

The announcement was welcomed by members of the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable, which has backed the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act.

“We have the best public lands, waters, and outdoor businesses in the world right here in the United States, but if Americans can’t access them with sound roads or if the campgrounds, marinas, and trails are in disrepair or unsafe, then we are missing out on economic opportunity and undermining our American outdoor heritage,” ORR president Jessica Turner said in a separate statement.

“The announcement of a $2.8 billion investment in public lands infrastructure and access is huge for the nation’s and local communities’ economies.”
