Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) (Public Law 117-58, also known as the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law”) into law. The IIJA is the largest long-term investment in the Nation’s infrastructure and economy in history. It provides $550 billion over fiscal years 2022 through 2026 in new Federal investment in infrastructure, including in roads, bridges, and mass transit, water infrastructure, resilience, and broadband.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has launched a website designed for transportation agencies, communities and stakeholders interested in learning more about the IIJA. The website, at https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bipartisan-infrastructure-law/, serves as a one-stop shop online for transportation agencies and others interested in learning more about new and existing FHWA programs as well as how to apply for grants and other discretionary funding opportunities available under the IIJA.
