Administration Invests $703 Million in Port Development

Transportation Department supports efforts to develop supply chain reliability.

The Department of Transportation announced that 41 port-improvement projects have been approved to receive $703 million in funding. The Maritime Administration’s Port Infrastructure Development Program will be distributing these funds to coastal ports, river ports, and Great Lakes ports to increase port capacity and streamline the transportation process of the incoming goods.

“So many of the goods we all count on, from appliances to furniture to clothes, move through our nation’s ports on their way to us,” said Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg. “Using funds from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, this year we’re awarding record levels of funding to improve our port infrastructure, strengthen our supply chains, and help cut costs for American families.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Transportation Department officials as they support improvements at U.S. ports.
  • For discernment for Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees the various agencies within his department.
  • For the project managers to made wise and effective use of the funding.
