USDA to Improve Water Quality, Roads, and Trails

The $36 million in funding comes through infrastructure legislation.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced the coming investment of $36 million to improve America’s roads, trails, bridges, water quality, and fish habitat on national forests and grasslands. The Investing in America agenda supports a “clean energy economy” while developing economic empowerment in communities nationwide. The U.S. Forest Service is currently supporting 98 projects through its Legacy Roads and Trails Program under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said, “Through these investments, we are ensuring roads and bridges on national forests and grasslands can withstand the unpredictable climate and weather so visitors and surrounding communities stay safe, and so that millions of Americans continue to enjoy the clean water and recreation opportunities forests and grasslands provide.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For USDA Secretary Vilsack to seek God’s leading as he oversees the allotment of infrastructure funds.
  • For Chief Randy Moore as he heads the U.S. Forest Service.
  • For USDA and Forest Service personnel as they steward the nation’s grasslands and forests.
