|Thanks to President Biden and Democrats in Congress, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is set to make historic investments in Tribal communities that will help revitalize aging infrastructure, secure clean drinking water, create good-paying jobs, and tackle the climate crisis head on.
President Biden’s infrastructure plan will bring over $13 billion in direct investments to Tribes, from $3.5 billion for clean water projects to $2 billion for broadband investments, including the Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program.
