Biden Kicks Off Infrastructure Week by Highlighting Historic Results

As 2024’s Infrastructure Week kicks off, the Biden-Harris Administration celebrates the historic progress of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda.

The Administration has announced nearly $454 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to date, including over 56,000 specific projects and awards, across over 4,500 communities in all 50 states, D.C., the territories, and for Tribes. To highlight the wide-ranging impact of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the White House has released an updated map showcasing the more than 56,000 projects and awards that are identified or now underway.

According to The White House, the Administration is also highlighting progress across President Biden’s entire Investing in America agenda — which includes the Inflation Reduction Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, the American Rescue Plan, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The President’s agenda has driven over $866 billion dollars in private sector manufacturing and clean energy investments in the United States, and the Administration is releasing new state by state fact sheets that spotlight investments and projects in all 50 states, the territories, and Washington DC.

This Infrastructure Week, the Administration also continues to call on Republicans in Congress to extend funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program, a Bipartisan Infrastructure Law program that has lowered internet bills to enable more than 23 million households—1 in 6 households across the country—to access affordable high-speed internet. Without action from Congress, millions of Americans will see their internet bills increase or lose internet access at the end of May.
