NOHVCC is working with Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) and Outdoor Recreation Roundtable to build a comprehensive list of Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)-eligible recreation projects for funding through the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA). With the passage of GAOA this summer, the outdoor recreation community has an unprecedented opportunity to have its voice and priorities carried out through LWCF and the maintenance backlog. Now it’s on us to show the diverse array of projects across the country that will get more people outside, create recreation economies, and grow the industry for years to come.
We’ve created a survey to capture as much information as you can share about LWCF projects that would benefit your business, recreation activity or community.
The short survey asks for basic project information, recreation activities it would support, and context about the project’s development to date. The more information you’re able to provide, the better we can advocate for these projects with policymakers. Please share as many projects as you’re able by retaking the survey—it is so helpful for us to have this kind of on-the-ground knowledge.
Thanks in advance for supporting this work. As you know, when this industry moves forward with a unified voice, we build more resilient communities, improve access to outdoor recreation for all Americans and grow the $778 billion recreation economy.
