Over the last two years, Congress has passed historic provisions for climate and conservation in the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA), Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). So what happens now? How can state and local organizations like land trusts and conservation alliances help leverage this legislation to support impactful projects, and share stories of success? This session will profile lessons learned and best practices for how organizations can educate key influencers about the benefits of GAO /IIJA / IRA, and advocate for local measures to support their implementation. Participants will have the opportunity to workshop scenarios for how they and their organizations could approach potential opportunities for engagement.
