The Reclamation Fund
Wednesday, February 17, 2021, at 10:00 AM MST

The Reclamation Fund was created through The Reclamation Act of 1902. The fund was originally designed to support irrigation projects in the western United States, and its funding came primarily from the sale of federal land and timber. Over the years, Congress explored new revenue sources for the fund, and expanded the projects the fund was authorized to support.
