Infrastructure Funding 2022

OVERVIEW | Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL)

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides $918 million for Watershed Programs that address new, ongoing, emergent, and relief to all communities to address watershed resource concerns. The amount provided to protect our watersheds is historic and highlights the priorities set by Secretary Vilsack to address the effects of climate change, ensure equity, and create a path toward climate resiliency. 

USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is funding projects in rounds. In the first wave of funding (March), NRCS invested more than $166.5 million in 108 projects in 23 states. The second round of funding (April) provides $420 million for 132 watershed protection projects in 31 states, including rehabilitating dams, flood prevention, and watershed preservation.

NRCS will continue to review and fund requests as funds are available. 

NRCS encourages local sponsors to submit requests through their local program managers. Find contact information and additional resources.
