Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), which invests more than $13 billion directly in Tribal communities across the country and makes Tribal communities eligible for billions more. These resources go to many Federal agencies to expand access to clean drinking water for Native communities, ensure every Native American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental justice, and invest in Tribal communities that have too often been left behind.

The U.S. Department of the Interior received a $466 million investment for the Bureau of Indian Affairs for infrastructure projects and climate resiliency initiatives, as well as a historic investment of $2.5 billion to help the Department fulfill pre-existing settlements of Indian water rights claims. The Secretary of the Interior is making it a priority to garner input from Tribal leaders on the important opportunities and decisions facing our Department. The Secretary announced virtual consultations sessions in a letter addressed to Tribal leaders and Alaska Native Corporations CEO, and enclosed fact sheets on the infrastructure programs, as well as a framing paper with questions.
