"White House Requests $2.8 Billion For Parks, Conservation Projects"

"The Biden administration is proposing $2.8 billion for the departments of Interior and Agriculture to fund national park programs and conservation projects across the country, the agencies announced Thursday.

The proposed funding for fiscal 2022 represents the maximum allowed under the bipartisan Great American Outdoor Act, which former President Trump signed in August.

The law included $900 million a year for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) as well as up to $1.9 billion annually for national park maintenance for five years."
