The Biden Administration, through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (now known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law), has made billions in funding available for states, Tribes, local governments, and public-private partnership opportunities over the next five years. This funding, as well as grant opportunities through the Inflation Reduction Act, will be used to rebuild America’s roads, bridges, and rails, expand access to clean drinking water, ensure every American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental action, and invest in communities that have too often been left behind.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act present an unprecedented opportunity for Oregon to secure federal funds to replace aging infrastructure, propel climate action, and invest in urban, rural, and frontier communities across the state, as well as facilitate and advance partnerships across stakeholders, state agencies, and local jurisdictions. To date, $2.6 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding has been announced and is headed to Oregon with over 265 specific projects identified for funding.
Opportunities and Local Efforts
Local jurisdictions, including cities, counties, Tribes, and special districts, can apply for program funding from the IIJA/Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Inflation Reduction Act
The Biden Administration’s Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has dedicated historic investments to propel climate action across our states. Investments from the IRA and the Affordable Clean Energy Plan are putting money back into the pockets of everyday Oregonians and Americans across the country. With the rising cost of electric bills, gasoline, and groceries, these investments are critical to supporting working people and families everywhere.
