Strengthening Our Nation’s Resiliency to a Changing Climate
The IIJA spurs substantial investments to reduce our contributions to climate change such as electrifying the transportation network and carbon capture/sequestration. The legislation also supports greater resiliency of our energy grid, and invests in renewable and clean energy, and land restoration.
This policy brief provides background on federal climate-related initiatives and serves as an illustrative overview of IIJA programs related to climate, resiliency, and adaptation. This discussion is not exhaustive and should serve as a starting point for understanding the breadth and depth of programs focused on this topic.
