The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provided the Department of Homeland Security and its components $8 billion for infrastructure projects. Of that, FEMA received $6.8B for community-wide mitigation to reduce disaster suffering and avoid future disaster costs in the face of more frequent and severe events.
Key priorities include:
- Investing public dollars wisely and equitably to reach under-served communities
- Creating stronger and more resilient infrastructure
- Building sustainable partnerships with state, local, tribal and territorial governments to tackle the climate crisis
- Advancing environmental justice and investing in communities that have too often been left behind
