This renewal grant to the Center for American Progress would continue support for its successful efforts to restore balance between conservation and energy development on public lands. The goal of its efforts is to seek additional protection for ecologically important public land for the benefit of current and future generations. The Center would work to secure policies that minimize the impact of fossil fuels extraction on public lands, including reducing associated greenhouse gas emissions. To reach its goal, the Center will work with recreational users of public lands, businesses, and conservation organizations to develop wise policies and to help diverse voices from around the West speak on behalf of land protection.
