White House releases investment data

February 01, 2024
By: Conor Gowder

The White House recently published a data tool, accompanied by a downloadable excel file housing two datasets, with recent investments from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The tool and data provide a view of the spending that is occurring across the United States from the two acts. In addition to a categorical breakdown of awards, agency, department, project name, funding source, and more are available for each award.

The first dataset reflects a subset of BIL and IRA funding, including projects with at least state-level geodata (some include more specific geodata such as county and/or city) announced as of November 22, 2023 (BIL and IRA) and awarded as of September 30, 2023 (BIL). The set, however, excludes private investments and funding from other sources like the American Rescue Plan. The data spans 11 categories, including key investment areas such as broadband, clean energy, transportation, and environmental remediation, and represents awards totaling over $160 billion.

The second dataset is dedicated solely to BIL-funded projects. It encompasses formula funding allocated to states and territories and discretionary grants awarded directly to recipients within those regions. Like the first dataset, it excludes multi-state funding, future and unannounced awards at the time of the last data update, and awards from other funding sources (e.g., IRA). With its focus on BIL, this data highlights a smaller subset of four categories (broadband; climate, energy and the environment; transportation; and other), representing awards totaling over $360 billion.

The data tool and downloadable data are on the White House’s website. Both sets of data are on the same excel sheet, accessible under the map by clicking “DOWNLOAD MAP DATA.”
