Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act: A Guide to Key Energy and Infrastructure Programs and Funding

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which was signed into law on November 15, 2021, is the most comprehensive infrastructure statute in a generation. It authorizes historic investments in U.S. infrastructure, with $1.2 trillion in total spending on traditional assets such as roads and bridges as well as on newer initiatives relating to clean energy, carbon capture, water and broadband internet. The Biden administration has taken a number of steps to implement the provisions in the law, with more expected in the months ahead.

In this four-part series, we outline the programs and funding that we believe will catalyze private sector investment in the transportation, energy, carbon capture, water and broadband sectors.

Part I: Transportation Infrastructure and Provisions Related to Public-Private Partnerships
This is the first in our series on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which we believe will catalyze significant private sector investment in transportation, energy, carbon capture, water and broadband initiatives.

Part II: Electric Vehicles and Battery Materials Processing, Manufacturing and Recycling
In Part II, we explore the funding and program initiatives that promote electric vehicle adoption and domestic electric vehicle manufacturing.

Part III: Energy, Water and Broadband Infrastructure
In Part III, we focus on funding for clean energy initiatives and for infrastructure relating to clean drinking water, wastewater and increased access to high-speed internet.
