Building a Better Nevada
“Every day, we are working to build a brighter future for Nevadans. When I make a promise, I know there are thousands of people — families, workers, children — relying on the State to follow through. These historic investments will allow us to rebuild our infrastructure, connect our communities, and create thousands of good-paying jobs for Nevadans.”– Governor Sisolak
In November 2021, with the support of Nevada’s Congressional delegation, Congress passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This is the single largest long-term investment in our country’s infrastructure and competitiveness in nearly a century.
Transforming Nevada’s Infrastructure
Since the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was enacted, Governor Sisolak and his administration have been diligently working to maximize Nevada’s allocation of funds to make transformational investments in our infrastructure and to build a better, stronger Nevada.
Nevada is poised to receive upwards of $4 billion dollars over five years under the IIJA in formula funding alone. The State is also pursuing millions of dollars in competitive grants under the IIJA. This once-in-a-generation investment will repair and modernize our infrastructure, promote environmental justice, and create an estimated 140,000 new jobs.
