The Historic Opportunities for Racial Equity in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act February 2022

The Historic Opportunities for Racial Equity in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

"this bill has the potential to represent a major first step in addressing racial inequities and existing infrastructure failures. Notably, if implemented well, major concerns faced by people of color throughout the United States—unsafe and car-damaging roads, lack of access to high-speed internet, health risks as a result of poor water infrastructure and particulate matter pollution, insufficient and unreliable public transit, and high flood and other climate change risks—can be significantly improved by the IIJA."
