Investing in America to Build a Brighter, Healthier Future
When President Biden took office, he promised to make our economy work for all families. From creating good-paying jobs to strengthening communities that have been left behind, that’s what the President’s Investing in America agenda is all about. With these once-in-a-generation investments from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act, we are delivering on that promise.
Through these historic laws, EPA is investing nearly $100 billion (that’s billion with a B) to upgrade our nation’s aging water systems, clean up pollution in communities, accelerate the transition to clean transportation, and so much more.
With these unprecedented investments, we are moving further and faster than ever before to build a healthier and brighter future for our people and our planet.
Delivering Clean Drinking Water
Clean water is essential for healthy and thriving communities. President Biden has made upgrading in our nation’s water infrastructure a cornerstone of his agenda, because investing in our waters is investing in America. With these resources, EPA is working to replace 100% of lead pipes, repair aging infrastructure to withstand impacts from climate change, and tackle emerging contaminants like PFAS.
Lowering Energy Costs for Families
From deploying cost-saving solar energy to investing in new and advanced technology, the Investing in America plan is accelerating the clean energy economy. EPA is investing billions of dollars to finance clean energy projects across the country to reduce harmful pollution and cut energy costs for families.
Through President Biden’s Investing in America plan, we’re uplifting communities who have been disproportionately impacted for far too long, whether it’s suffering from high levels of pollution to lacking access to basic wastewater sanitation services. With this funding, we are committed to removing obstacles that hold so many communities back from accessing critical federal government resources.
President Biden’s Investing in America plan is not only addressing many of our nation’s most longstanding and pervasive environmental and public health concerns, but it’s creating good-paying jobs, unleashing American manufacturing, and lowering energy costs for families.
EPA is moving swiftly to get this historic funding into communities across America — and ensuring that it reaches those who need it most. We’ve already invested billions of dollars, and we’re just getting started. Let’s go!
