The White House released the first edition of its Bipartisan Infrastructure Law guidebook to help tribal, state, local, and territorial governments unlock the benefits from the historic investments in our nation’s infrastructure. The guidebook is a one-stop-shop on the law and contains the most comprehensive information to date on the more than 375 programs included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
To this end, the White House has also published an accompanying data file that allows users to quickly sort programs funded under the law by fields like agency, amount, recipient, or program name.
Future phases of the guidebook will update dates, key timelines for program implementation, best practices, case studies, and links to key resources developed by the White House and key partners. The White House will continue to update this resource online at Build.gov.
To help partners better understand how to use this document and hear the latest updates on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law implementation, the White House is hosting two webinars this week for intergovernmental partners and stakeholders:
- Wednesday, February 2nd at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time: Register Here.
- Friday, February 4th at 9 a.m. Eastern Time: Register Here.
The White House recognizes tribal, state, local, and territorial capacity may be strained due to the pandemic, historic underinvestment, or just the challenges of day-to-day governance. A community’s lack of capacity to apply for federal funds can create significant inequities – and for many communities, this will be their first time applying for funds from a suite of federal agencies. While many funding streams in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law specifically set aside funds for disadvantaged communities, the White House Infrastructure Implementation Team will be engaging tribes, states, local governments, territories, federal agencies, philanthropies, and others to leverage all available resources to quickly deliver the necessary technical assistance and capacity to underserved communities. The guidebook is a critical tool to accelerate and amplify the impact of this work.
