On August 16, President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law.

This comprehensive legislation package will deliver significant investments to programs that protect and enhance our nation’s scenic beauty and visual character. The legislation will increase the resilience of our infrastructure, communities, and natural spaces while at the same time addressing the climate crisis.

This passage of the IRA is a big win for scenic conservation advocates across the country. It represents a massive investment in public lands and urban green spaces, tree preservation, wildlife habitat protection, and other programs benefiting communities of all sizes and geographies.

Scenic America applauds Congress and President Biden for seizing this opportunity to create a more scenic and more resilient nation for all people and communities.
