Through a large flush of federal funds distributed to environmental groups in 2024, they could potentially add another 225 million acres of private land to 30×30 over the next five years.

On April 6, 2024, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced "the availability of an historic $1.5 billion in fiscal year 2024 to invest in partner-driven conservation and climate solutions through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)" as part of Biden's 30×30 agenda (aka "America the Beautiful").

The USDA announcement states: "Today's action also advances President Biden's America the Beautiful initiative, a 10-year, locally led and nationally scaled conservation initiative that includes the voluntary efforts of farmers, ranchers and private landowners."
