In May 2022, the Biden administration released the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Tribal Playbook: A Roadmap for Delivering Opportunity and Investment in Indian Country” to help tribal communities access funds to address infrastructure deficiencies. The $1 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill (BIL) provides more than $13 billion to support tribal projects with billions more available through competitive grants.
The BIL Tribal Playbook provides an overview and contact points for programs, funding sources, and technical assistance available for tribes. Infrastructure projects eligible for funding include:
- Promoting affordable, high-speed internet
- Improving roads, bridges, and public transportation
- Protecting the environment and promoting clean energy
- Investing in cybersecurity
