How the Biden Administration is working to improve water quality, roads, and trails for rural America

The Biden Administration is working to improve water quality, roads, trails and fish habitats nationwide.

President Biden announced more than $65 million to help the USDA’s Forest Service do this. The investments will support projects that serve rural communities by creating jobs and improving access to national forests and grasslands.

Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, says, “The investments we’re making here ensure communities have clean drinking water and they improve fish habitats that rural areas rely on for subsistence and strong recreation economies.”

This funding is coming from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
