Action Alert: Fund the Land & Water Conservation Fund
The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), often referred to as “America’s best conservation program,” needs your help!
Since 1964, the LWCF has been supporting local, state, and federal projects to protect coastal habitats and enhance recreation opportunities for the public.
In March 2019, Congress permanently reauthorized the LWCF due to its popular, bipartisan support. The reauthorization was a major victory to coastal and ocean advocates; however, it did not come with guaranteed funding.
Now, lawmakers in both the House and Senate have introduced legislation to ensure the Land and Water Conservation Fund receives the full $900 million that it’s authorized to spend each year.
Please urge your Congressional representatives to support legislation to fully fund the Land Water Conservation Fund!
