People Powered Infrastructure

In 2022 President Biden signed into law a historic, nearly $1 trillion bill to invest in American infrastructure. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, is an investment that can meet the demand for resilient, sustainable, and equitable infrastructure, which will only increase in the midst of global transformation and climate change.

But investing in hard infrastructure isn’t enough – we must also invest in a diverse, multigenerational workforce trained to power our infrastructure. Join NSC in urging policy makers to support people powered infrastructure!
