Bipartisan Infrastructure Law - 2022 Funding

Signed into law in November 2021, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), also known as Public Law 117-58 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) [PDF, 2.6 MB], provides ~$1.2 trillion in funding to federal agencies for work related to transportation, energy, water, internet, and natural-resources related infrastructure. This includes resources for the Departments of Agriculture (USDA), the Interior (DOI), and Commerce (DOC) that are directly or indirectly tied to invasive species management.

Division D Title VIII, Sec. 40804(b)06 of the law provides DOI and USDA’s U.S. Forest Service (FS) $100 million each for invasive species detection, prevention, and eradication, including conducting research and providing resources to facilitate detection of invasive species at points of entry and awarding grants for eradication of invasive species on non-Federal land and on Federal land. It also provides DOC’s National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) $2.96 billion to fund activities within 18 provisions in the areas of Climate Data and Services, Climate Ready Coasts, and Fisheries and Protected Resources. An overall description of current spending to date and/or projected spending over the 5-year funding period is provided below.
