Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provides the basis for Federal Highway Administration programs and activities through September 2026. It makes a $350 billion investment in the nation’s highway programs, including the largest dedicated bridge investment since the construction of the Interstate Highway System, and provides opportunities for all state transportation departments to compete for a significant amount of new grant funding. In Indiana, The BIL increased INDOT’s core federal program by approximately $970 million through FY 2026.

INDOT is using this influx of federal funding to continue taking care of the state’s transportation assets, delivering major projects identified in our seven-year rolling capital/asset management plan, accelerating delivery of projects with high return for taxpayers, including adding travel lanes to I-65 and I-70, and planning for the future.

How the BIL Impacts INDOT

The table below shows the new formula distribution funding above FAST ACT levels, meaning these amounts represent funding on top of what INDOT already receives annually. The local portion goes to both metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) for distribution to urban areas and to INDOT to distribute to rural areas through our local federal-aid program.

FY2022F2023FY2024FY2025FY2026
INDOT$156M$174.6M$193.5M$212.8M$232.5M
Locals$52M$58.2M$64.5M$70.9M$77.5M

  • Public Transportation: $682M
  • Local Communities: $323.1M

  • Wildfire/Climate Change Prevention: $20M
  • Cyber Security: $20M

This part of the funding involves renewing/extending funding Indiana already receives. Most of the BIL funding is renewed surface transportation funding, which has been allocated to Indiana annually. Indiana is anticipating $5.6B through FY2026.

Discretionary Grant Opportunities

This portion of the BIL webpage provides information about the discretionary grant opportunities included in the law.

The information included here will be updated as more program implementation details are released by the USDOT.

The Federal Government's Guidebook has the full list of funding available for each grant. You can search funding by agency, amount, eligible recipient, or program name at build.gov.
