Through the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) National Parks and Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund (LRF), the U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior Department) is investing in our public lands so they can be cherished and enjoyed for many years to come. GAOA LRF funding helps to maintain and restore assets managed by the Interior Department at recreational areas, wildlife refuges, national parks, and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE)-funded schools. GAOA funding also helps to accommodate the increased visitation our national parks and public lands have seen in the past few years. The impacts of GAOA are far-reaching with many beneficiaries, such as local communities, BIE-funded schools and staff, the natural environment, visitors, volunteers, and staff.
Statistics below reflect funded projects from fiscal years 2021-2023.
