American Infrastructure Funding Starts Rolling Out

The rebuilding of America has begun. The Biden administration is distributing funds from the bipartisan infrastructure law.

Why it matters: We’ll begin to see the real-world and tangible benefits from this historic law for American families, businesses, and communities.

By the numbers: Here’s what the administration has announced recently:

  • $1.5 billion for states to clean up orphaned oil and gas wells
  • $1.2 billion for highways in rural Appalachia
  • $11 million in grant awards for transit-oriented development
  • $17 billion increase to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to be distributed among the states.
