Full and Dedicated Funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund
Now is our chance to finally secure permanent, dedicated funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The United States House of Representatives is reviewing H.R. 3195, a bi-partisan bill to permanently provide $900 million annually to the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The House bill mirrors the recently introduced Senate bill S. 1081.
Write to your Representative today asking for their support of H.R. 3195 by joining as a co-sponsor.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund is a visionary and bipartisan federal funding program for protecting our nation’s most special places. From Sterling Forest in the New York Highlands, to White Cap Mountain in Maine, to the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, the Land and Water Conservation Fund has funded the protection of some of our most iconic landscapes and trails in the Northeast. Earlier this year, we celebrated the permanent re-authorization of the Land Water Conservation Fund, but without dedicated funding Congress’ work is not complete as more than half of the funding intended for the Land and Water Conservation has been diverted to other purposes over the past 55 years.
