Background

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was introduced into Congress by Representative Peter Defazio on June 4, 2021. Following months of negotiations, the bill passed in Congress with bipartisan support and was signed into law by President Joe Biden on November 15, 2021. The law authorizes $1.2 trillion in infrastructure spending across more than 380 federal programs. Of that, approximately $650 billion reauthorizes existing funding, and another $550 billion adds new funding to support the nation's infrastructure needs. 

ODOE has been actively researching and planning for requesting available funds since the passage of the IIJA. The funding is provided under various programs, some of which are still under development with federal agencies.

Stakeholder Engagement

ODOE will host two webinars on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The webinars will provide an overview of the anticipated funding to Oregon and seek public input to establish guiding priorities, which will help ODOE assess each funding opportunity and our approach to implementation. Meeting details, including how to participate, will be provided below.

The webinars will be recorded and posted with the meeting details below​​. An online comment portal is also availa​​ble, ​​so you can invite others to weigh in and participate in this process at your convenience.​
