DOT Awards $2.2 Billion to Infrastructure Projects

Half of the grants go to urban areas and half to rural.

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg announced the recipients of more than $2.2 billion in grant funding, providing key resources to 162 local infrastructure projects across the country. The RAISE grant program was expanded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and equal 2023 funding will go to rural and urban areas. The department prioritized areas of persistent poverty, with 70 percent of the chosen projects located in areas marked by historic disinvestment.

“Using the funds in President Biden’s infrastructure law, we are helping communities in every state across the country realize their visions for new infrastructure projects,” said Secretary Buttigieg. “This round of RAISE grants is helping create a new generation of good-paying jobs in rural and urban communities alike, with projects whose benefits will include improving safety, fighting climate change, advancing equity, strengthening our supply chain, and more.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees the awarding of infrastructure grants.
  • For Transportation officials as they consider the areas most in need of federal infrastructure investments.
  • For state and local leaders to ensure the efficient use of this government funding.
