Interior Announces Nevada and California Conservation Projects

$348 million will be used across 62 projects. 

The Department of the Interior announced last week that 62 new conservation projects in California and Nevada would be funded through federal grants. Over 81% of all the land in Nevada is federally owned. In total, $348 million will be used to build projects including recreation facilities, habitat conservation, and wildfire prevention. 

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland said of the projects, “This program makes a significant investment in supporting jobs and local economies throughout Nevada and the Lake Tahoe Basin. These funds will improve recreation opportunities in rural and low-income communities, and contribute to the Biden-Harris administration’s America the Beautiful initiative’s goal to conserve at least 30 percent each of our lands and waters by the year 2030.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials of the Interior Department to steward its funds wisely to bring about the protection of the environment.
  • For the president’s administration as they develop plans to protect American lands.
  • That Secretary Haaland would seek God’s guidance as she leads the Interior Department.
