Abstract: We present the GALFA-H I survey. GALFA-H I is an ongoing survey of neutral hydrogen (H I) in the Galaxy conducted at the 305 m Arecibo telescope. We briefly discuss the parameters of the survey, and the philosophy behind our observational strategy. We discuss the GALFA-H I survey in the context of other large area HI surveys, past, present, and future, and compare it to these surveys in terms of various observational parameters. We give a very brief overview of all the surveys being conducted with the ALFA instrument and discuss the importance of our commensal partnerships with a subset of these surveys. We discuss our current survey coverage, and describe our current and future data availability. We also briefly describe some of the science being conducted with the ongoing survey.
