ABOUT IIJA

President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) on November 15, authorizing $1.2 trillion in spending. Unlike ARPA and CARES Act COVID-19 relief funding, IIJA does not provide the state with highly discretionary funding managed on a statewide level. Funds will instead be distributed through new and existing grant programs which are managed at the state agency level. IIJA funding is meant to address long-term investments in transportation, energy, water, broadband, public lands, environmental remediation, and resiliency. 

As a state, we value fiscal responsibility and long-term planning. IIJA funds will be carefully coordinated across state government by the Governor's Office of Planning & Budget (GOPB), and implemented with long-lasting improvements in mind.
