Federal Infrastructure Investments

Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act aka The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed into law the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The IIJA includes $550 billion in new federal investments in infrastructure, will add an estimated two million jobs per year to the national economy, and offers cities, towns, and villages access to a new and increased infrastructure funding. Vermont communities can utilize this funding to fulfill their infrastructure needs – including transportation networks, water systems, and broadband capabilities.

The following resources can help municipal leaders understand the ways the IIJA is applicable to their communities and how to prepare to access these critically important programs of federal funding.
