The Great American Outdoors Act
July 20, 2020
GFWC has asked its Legislative Action Center subscribers to contact their members of Congress about supporting the Great American Outdoors Act. The bipartisan bill changes the funding formula for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) which was created to help preserve, develop, and ensure access to public outdoor recreational facilities.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
