FHWA releases emergency funds for government agencies

September 19, 2023

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently made available $4.575 million in “quick release” Emergency Relief funds for the National Park Service, the Forest Service, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

The Emergency Relief program provides funding to federal land management agencies, states, territories, and tribes for bridges and highways damaged by natural disasters or catastrophic events.

Funding will be used to offset the cost of repairing roads, trails, parking areas, and other infrastructure that was damaged by flooding caused by Tropical Storm Hilary in Death Valley National Park and other federal lands in California and Nevada in August.
