Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Advancing racial equity in Philadelphia through Bipartisan Infrastructure Law-funded projects.


The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), also known as the Investment in Infrastructure and Jobs Act (IIJA), is the largest long-term infrastructure investment in our country’s history. Nationally, it will provide $1.2 trillion in new federal funding between 2022 and 2026.

Between the BIL and state infrastructure grant programs, the City will receive almost $1 billion in funding over five years. The funds will be used for improvements to:

  • Roads, bridges, and mass transit.
  • Water infrastructure.
  • Electric vehicle charging.
  • Broadband.
  • Other key infrastructure needs.

The Infrastructure Solutions Team (IST), led by the Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability (OTIS), will spearhead this work. The IST's mission is to advance racial equity with the BIL funding. The team will work to:

  • Increase the number of City contracts awarded to historically underutilized businesses.
  • Ensure that infrastructure workers, from planning to construction, look more like the population of Philadelphia.
