Thanks to your calls and letters to legislators, the President today made it official: we have achieved permanent and full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

The bill, the Great American Outdoors Act, delivers permanent, dedicated, annual funding of $900 million for LWCF and up to $9.5 billion annually over the next five years to address the urgent and deferred maintenance needs on federal lands, parks, and forests.

LWCF has been essential for land conservation for generations, and ensures that more people have access to nature. Safe, welcoming, and inclusive access to nature for all is vital for our well-being and for the future of a diverse environmental movement. LWCF also spurs new investments in our outdoor economy, which in this critical time can mean important job opportunities.

Thank you! This couldn’t have happened without you.
