Interior Highlights Infrastructure Projects

Describes recent bill as “largest investment in physical and natural systems in American history.” 

The Department of the Interior released a statement this past week highlighting how the recently passed bipartisan infrastructure bill would impact the department. The passage of the bill was described by the Interior as the “largest investment in physical and natural systems in American history.” $250 million was apportioned for construction and repair of various interior facilities, and $216 million was set aside for Tribal climate resilience programs. An additional $2.5 billion is to deliver on promises to Tribal governments for water rights.

Secretary Haaland said of the new funding, “As the effects of climate change continue to intensify, Indigenous communities are facing unique climate-related challenges that pose existential threats to Tribal economies, infrastructure, livelihoods, and health.” She went on to say, the investments, “will help bolster community resilience, replace aging infrastructure, and provide support needed for climate-related relocation and adaptation.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials in the Interior Department to be led by God to steward this new federal funding wisely.
  • That Secretary Haaland would seek God’s direction in disbursing infrastructure funds.
  • For the president’s administration to look to the Lord for guidance as they care for His creation.
