Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Funding Status

BIL Funding Status as of June 30, 2024 – This report shows the status of funding that was provided in the BIL.

This data is updated bi-weekly.  Below is a summary table showing the changes from the June 16 to June 30 data.

This report shows how BIL funds are progressing. Funds are first enacted in law and then adjustments and transfers are accounted for. Based on these activities, an adjusted amount of funding is available in a given budget account and funding source.

Of the available funding, DOT provides funding to eligible grant recipients. Some of those funds are made available on a formula basis by law, other funds are made available through a discretionary competitive process. Regardless of how DOT makes those funds available to grant recipients, they are accounted for in the grants announced column.

DOT and grant recipients then work together to finalize the terms and conditions of a grant agreement and mutually enter into binding agreements.  The agreements obligate the funding to grant recipients – sometimes obligating in staggered phases (design, pre-construction, construction, etc).  From those obligated amounts, recipients then request payment for eligible expenses, and these are called outlays.

Notes:

  • The increase in grants announced are due to OST's National Infrastructure Investments grant program. The increase in obligations and outlays are primarily attributed FHWA's Federal-Aid Highways grants program and Highway Infrastructure Program and FTA's Transit Formula Grants program.  

  • The “Grants Announced” data refers to DOT’s public selection of grants for projects resulting from a competitive application process and to Formula Grant Funding that DOT Operating Administrations have apportioned or allocated to grant recipients.

  • USASpending is an official government website that provides a different tool to explore this data in more detail. DOT sends data to USASpending in accordance with government-wide reporting timelines. The data presented on this page is provided on a faster timeline than USASpending.
