President Joe Biden signed the bipartisan $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law on Nov. 15, 2021. Find a detailed summary of the major provisions impacting states. You can also watch an NCSL staff briefing for legislators and legislative staff providing a deep dive on the bill or access the slide presentation.

On Jan. 31, 2022, the White House released A Guidebook to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Governments, and Other Parties.

On April 11, 2022, the White House released a Rural Infrastructure Playbook for implementing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The playbook provides information for rural communities on all available resources under the IIJA, where to apply, funding flexibilities, and how to find more information. It also includes a list of more than 100 programs with cost share or matching requirement waivers. There are also federal agency specific fact sheets for all rural specific programs within the IIJA.

On April 18, 2022, the White House issued requirements for how projects funded by the infrastructure law should source their construction materials from U.S. companies—“Buy America.” The guidance requires that material purchased for projects like roads, bridges and pipelines comes from domestic sources beginning May 14. The guidance seeks to “increase reliance on domestic supply chains and reduce the need for waivers,” and exceptions to the Buy America policy will be made public prior to waivers being granted. The goal, according to the guidance, is to ensure American workers and companies benefit from increased infrastructure spending and reduce U.S. reliance on China for critical supplies.

On May 11, the White House released updated guidance documents for federal agencies covering both improved infrastructure permitting practices for projects funded through the IIJA and guidance for federal agencies for reducing the impacts of waste, fraud, and abuse for projects funded through the IIJA.
