Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021

President Biden signed the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law –  transformational legislation that includes $550 billion in new federal funding for America’s crumbling infrastructure – delivering progress for working families and their communities across the country.

 The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will repair and modernize crumbling and outdated infrastructure across the nation, ensuring all American communities have the infrastructure to succeed in the 21st Century economy and ending bottlenecks that add needless delays and costs for businesses bringing products to market and families traveling to school or work.  

It will:

  • Rebuild roads and bridges nationwide, including the largest bridge investment since the construction of the interstate highway system seven decades ago;

  • Deliver clean drinking water to ten million families and more than 400,000 schools and child care facilities nationwide with the largest-ever investment in American water infrastructure to replace lead pipes and service lines across the nation;

  • Help clean up legacy pollution, which is an important step in advancing environmental justice;

  • Expand access to reliable high-speed internet to help more families get online to work and learn; 

  • Make historic improvements to public transit, with the largest federal investment in American history and the largest federal investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak; and

  • Support action to address the climate crisis, making down-payments on clean energy transmission, a clean and resilient electric grid, electric vehicle infrastructure and more.
