$11.3 billion in deferred maintenance needs. 75,000 National Park Service (NPS) assets. 42,000 assets with deferred maintenance needs. The numbers can seem overwhelming.
That’s the number of jobs that would be created or supported by investing in NPS infrastructure and addressing the maintenance backlog throughout the nation. Of potential infrastructure-related jobs, 53 percent would be in non-metro areas (areas with populations below 100,000), resulting in further positive economic impact in rural communities.
