FACT SHEET: How President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Will Build a Greener Georgia

February 9, 2022

Thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Georgia is set to receive significant investments to expand new, green economic opportunities across the state. This historic infrastructure package will build a national network of electric vehicle (EV) chargers, strengthen Georgia’s resilience to extreme weather and climate change, clean up toxic pollution, expand access to clean drinking water, remediate legacy pollution, deliver electric school buses to support clean air, and more.

“For too long, communities across Georgia have suffered from a lack of investment in our environmental infrastructure – from flood-prone communities on the coastline to industrial communities near factory plants. Thankfully, President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is delivering a once-in-a-generation investment to build a cleaner, greener Georgia,” Rhyan Lake, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Georgia, said. “From installing electric vehicle chargers across the state to expanding access to clean drinking water, these long overdue investments will take much-needed steps to improve public health, reduce pollution, and deliver economic revitalization to Georgia communities that have been overburdened, underserved, and left behind.”

  • President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest $7.5 billion to build out a national network of EV chargers in the United States. This is a critical step in the President’s strategy to fight the climate crisis, and it will create good U.S. manufacturing jobs.
  • President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide funding for the deployment of EV chargers along highway corridors to facilitate long-distance travel and within communities to provide convenient charging where people live, work, and shop.
  • This investment will support the President’s goal of building a nationwide network of 500,000 EV chargers to accelerate the adoption of EVs, reduce emissions, improve air quality, and create good-paying jobs across the country. 


  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest $55 billion to expand access to clean drinking water for households and businesses all across the country. From rural towns to struggling cities, the law will invest in water infrastructure and eliminate lead service pipes, including in Tribal Nations and disadvantaged communities that need it most.
  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will expand access to clean drinking water to all American families, eliminate the nation’s lead service lines, and help to clean up dangerous PFAS chemicals (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances).


  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest $21 billion to clean up Superfund and brownfield sites, reclaim abandoned mine land, and cap orphaned oil and gas wells. These projects will remediate environmental harms, address the legacy pollution that harms the public health of communities, create good-paying union jobs, and advance long-overdue environmental justice.


  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law expands access to public transit and makes the largest investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak – helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions by repairing, upgrading, and modernizing the nation’s transit infrastructure, including at least $1.4 billion to expand public transit in Georgia.
  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law also includes investments for a new program that will reconnect neighborhoods and ensure new projects increase opportunity, advance racial equity and environmental justice, and promote affordable access.


  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest $5 billion in a new clean school bus program, including $2.5 billion exclusively for electric school buses, using Senator Reverend Warnock’s Clean Commute for Kids Act as a framework for language.
