“This historic level of funding will help move Everglades restoration forward.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Administration’s budget includes $350 million for Everglades restoration, a historic increase over prior requests.
“This historic level of federal funding will help move Everglades restoration forward,” said Jessie Ritter, director of water resources for the National Wildlife Federation. “This effort is at a pivotal moment with a number of key projects underway, helped by strong investment from the state of Florida. The Army Corps has said that a total federal investment of $2.9 billion over the next four years would push these long-overdue projects over the finish line. Congress’ infrastructure package should include the full funding, creating thousands of jobs, increasing climate resilience, and protecting a national treasure.”
