Investing in America

President Biden’s Investing in America agenda is rebuilding the economy from the middle-out and bottom-up. It’s transforming our country for the better – reaching communities in every corner of the United States, including those that have too often been left behind.

As a result of historic legislation – including the American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act – the Interior Department is overseeing implementation of once-in-a-generation investments to prepare communities for the impacts of the climate crisis, including drought, wildfire and coastal erosion; clean up toxic legacy pollution sites; create healthier outdoor spaces and habitats for people and wildlife; and strengthen Indigenous communities. These investments, which are central to the Bidenomics strategy, will create jobs in clean energy, conservation and land management and spur economic revitalization in hard-hit energy communities.

To guide more than $2 billion in historic investments to restore our nations lands and waters, in 2023 the Department released a restoration and resilience framework to support coordination across agency restoration and resiliency programs and drive transformational outcomes.
