Great American Outdoors Act

Virtual Sensing Opportunity

The USDA Forest Service is moving forward with implementation of the Great American Outdoors Act, which will enable 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 the public to provide feedback on the deferred maintenance projects under consideration to be prioritized for funding in Fiscal Year 2021. This opportunity is intended to serve only as a virtual sensing opportunity via solicitation of public feedback. A response to the feedback submitted during this opportunity will not be provided. Projects selected for funding will be compliant with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Public notification and engagement on the selected projects will occur as required by regulation.

Please use the links below to review and provide feedback on proposed projects under consideration to be prioritized for funding in Fiscal Year 2021.

Your feedback is requested by Sept. 13, 2020.
