Great American Outdoors Act in the Southwest

The Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) enables federal land managers to take aggressive steps to address deferred maintenance and other infrastructure projects on national forests and grasslands. The Forest Service will use these funds to maximize the benefits experienced by millions of Americans who visit and use their national forests and rangelands. Projects funded by this act will focus on reducing deferred maintenance and other infrastructure projects and thereby improve the conditions and resiliency of our nation’s forests for present and future generations.

The Forest Service is inviting public feedback on a proposed list of deferred maintenance projects selected for Great American Outdoors Act funding in fiscal year 2022. Projects funded by GAOA will enable federal land managers to take aggressive steps to address deferred maintenance and other infrastructure projects on national forests and grasslands. Your feedback is requested by Nov. 30, 2020.

The Forest Service Washington Office maintains the final list of deferred maintenance projects.
