Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Information
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure and competitiveness in nearly a century.

For decades, infrastructure in New Jersey has suffered from a systemic lack of investment. In fact, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave New Jersey a D+ grade on its infrastructure report card. The historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will make life better for millions of New Jersey residents, create a generation of good-paying union jobs and economic growth, and position the United States to win the 21st century.
To date, over $4.8 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding has been announced and is headed to New Jersey with over 60 specific projects identified for funding. Since the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law passed, New Jersey is set to receive more than $4.2 billion for transportation to invest in roads, bridges, public transit, ports and airports and over $168 million for clean water. And, as of today, more than 190,000 households across the state are receiving affordable internet due to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Many more projects will be added in the coming months, as funding opportunities become grant awards and as formula funds become specific projects. By reaching communities all across New Jersey – including rural communities and historically underserved populations – the law makes critical investments that will improve lives for New Jerseyans and position the state for success.
