The Biden Administration is announcing investments of more than $36 million in nearly 100 projects to improve water quality, roads, trails, and bridges.
The Biden-Harris Administration is announcing investments of more than $36 million in nearly 100 projects to improve water quality, roads, trails, bridges and fish habitat on national forests and grasslands nationwide.
The announcement is part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda and the Administration’s work to build a clean energy economy while creating economic opportunity in communities across the country.
The investments are made possible by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which devotes unprecedented resources to infrastructure improvements. The funds are delivered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service through their Legacy Roads and Trails Program, which supports 98 projects in fiscal year 2023. The program funds projects, along with other restoration and infrastructure work, to improve water quality and aquatic habitat while making transportation systems safer, more sustainable and durable.
