The White House Office of Public Engagement released the following Rural Stakeholders Update on Jaunary 31, 2022:
With the signing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in mid-November, President Biden marked a new era of building a better America together. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is historic in its size – the largest ever investments in broadband, rail and transit, clean energy, and water, just to name a few – as well as the breadth of programs and sectors included in the law. Implementing the largest investment in our nation’s infrastructure in generations will require deep partnership alongside Members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, Tribal leaders, local officials, and community members.
Today, the White House is releasing a Bipartisan Infrastructure Law guidebook to provide information so you know what to apply for, who to contact, and how to get ready to rebuild. This guidebook is a 465 page roadmap to the funding available under the law, as well as an explanatory document that shows direct federal spending at the program level. We will continue to update this resource online at Build.gov and the current version is attached. Our goal is for you—rural communities all across America—to take full advantage of the opportunity this new funding presents.
The Biden-Harris Administration remains committed to building a better America—creating good middle-class jobs, supporting disadvantaged and underserved communities, advancing climate resilience and sustainability, and investing in American manufacturers. It is our hope this resource is another step forward in our work together to build a better America.
To help stakeholders better understand how to use this document and hear the latest updates on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law implementation, we’re are hosting two webinars over the next week:
