The U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior) is working to rehabilitate assets on our nation’s public lands through the Great American Outdoors Act National Parks and Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund (GAOA LRF). Explore the progress of GAOA LRF projects as they move toward completion and how much money GAOA LRF has obligated.
After Interior awards funding, GAOA LRF projects move through six major project phases: Planning, Design, Procurement, Construction, Substantially Complete, and Complete. The visualization below shows the rounded percentage of the current GAOA LRF funding in each of the major project phases as of June 2023. Click here to download the data in Excel format.

GAOA LRF dollars are already hard at work improving assets in national parks, national wildlife refuges, public lands, and Bureau of Indian Education-funded schools across the U.S. and territories. The visualization at right depicts the percentage of GAOA LRF funding available in each of the first three fiscal years of the program that Interior has obligated to date. Obligations represent the amount the government has agreed to pay for GAOA LRF projects and activities. For example, Interior obligates funding when Interior enters into a contract or places an order for goods or services. The total obligated GAOA LRF funding as of June 30, 2023, is $2,011,932,943.
