​Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was signed by President Biden on November 15, 2021 and authorized $1.2 trillion of investment through existing and new programs. Through this monumental investment, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection will receive billions of dollars for environmental projects within Pennsylvania. These projects will provide clean water to residents, clean up legacy pollution, and spur clean energy investments.

DEP intends to take advantage of federal funding opportunities in four ways:

  1. Receive and implement formula funding;
  2. Apply for competitive opportunities offered by Federal agencies;
  3. Provide support to other funding applicants through partnerships, letters of support, or financial match;
  4. Share federal funding opportunities to ensure potential applicants like Pennsylvania businesses, schools, communities, and nonprofits are aware of and competing for investments.
