Rebuilding America: The Next Phase of Infrastructure
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize America’s infrastructure.
President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law on November 15, 2021, boosting America’s global competitiveness and improving the quality of life for all Americans.
This new legislation is the single largest investment in bridges since construction of the Interstate Highway System, will help connect 14 million Americans to broadband, provide clean drinking water for 10 million families, upgrade our energy grid, and grow our economy. It is also the single largest investment in innovation, efficiency, and resiliency to address climate change in U.S. history.
Celebrating the One-Year Anniversary of IIJA and Turning Implementation Into Action
This week marks the one-year anniversary of the signing of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) into law. We've outlined the progress made and next steps.
Areas of Activity
The enactment of H.R. 3684, the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” is a historic, generational funding commitment for our nation’s hard infrastructure – including roads and bridges, rail, transit, ports, airports, water infrastructure, electric grid, and broadband. These are long-term, sustainable investments that will unlock our economy’s growth potential and productive capacity.
To learn more about the funding available under the law for specific issues, check out the issue pages below. In addition, the White House released a Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Guidebook with detailed program-by-program information to help state, local, tribal, and territorial leaders know what to apply for and who to contact.
How it happened
The U.S. Chamber engaged in a nine-month blitz of advocacy, advertising, and grass roots organizing to urge the passage of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
