The infrastructure at both national and state airports is a big part of President Biden’s investment and jobs plan. President Joe Biden’s $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act covers major infrastructure segments, including roads and bridges, waterways, broadband, electric vehicles and wildfire protection. Newer programs drawing infrastructure funds include cybersecurity efforts and electric-vehicle charging station networks.

A "patient approach to rebuilding American competitiveness through infrastructure" is how think tank Brookings Institution describes the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Though at $1.2 trillion it's less than President Joe Biden first proposed, the final breakdown amounts to a five-year funding span that is as broad as it is deep.

In addition to a minimum grant of $100 million to each state and U.S. territory for broadband expansion, allocations by state include:

Alabama

Alabama is set to receive $5.2 billion for federal-aid highway programs and $255 million for bridge replacements; $400 million for public transportation; $23 million to prevent and $19 million to protect against wildfires; $79 million to expand electric vehicle charging; $728 million for water infrastructure; and $140 million for airport infrastructure development.
