Great American Outdoors Act Strike Force.
The Great American Outdoors Act is a program formed in 2020 to reduce the maintenance backlog across the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Hired as part of a Strike Force, these positions will work alongside current Service staff to complete infrastructure projects such as levee reconstruction, facility repairs, and building demolition.
These projects are in many locations, thus a significant amount of the incumbent's time will be spent traveling for multiday to projects across the contiguous U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. Additionally, these positions will be required to sign a mobility agreement, with the intention of potentially moving these positions to other vacancies in the Service once the project work is complete.
