“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is a once-in-a-generation investment to help communities across the country tackle the climate crisis while creating good-paying jobs, addressing environmental justice, and boosting local economies."
-Secretary Deb Haaland
President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law contains several provisions that invest in Department of the Interior initiatives and benefit the communities and areas we directly serve. The Department received $28.1 billion across our bureaus and offices dedicated to restoring critical habitats, addressing the drought crisis, assisting with wildland fire management, and helping communities prepare for extreme weather events.
At Interior, we know that success in implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is through frequent collaboration with Tribal, local, state, and federal leaders and their communities. We will continue to work together to get these essential resources to the communities who need them most.
