                Executive Order 14052 of November 15, 2021

Implementation of the Infrastructure Investment 
                and Jobs Act

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, and in order to effectively implement the 
                historic infrastructure investments in the 
                Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (the Act), it is 
                hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Background. The Infrastructure Investment 
                and Jobs Act is a once-in-a-generation investment in 
                our Nation's infrastructure and competitiveness. It 
                will help rebuild America's roads, bridges, and rails; 
                expand access to clean drinking water; work to ensure 
                access to high-speed internet throughout the Nation; 
                tackle the climate crisis; advance environmental 
                justice; and invest in communities that have too often 
                been left behind. It will accomplish all of this while 
                driving the creation of good-paying union jobs and 
                growing the economy sustainably and equitably for 
                decades to come.

                Critical to achieving these goals will be the effective 
                implementation of the Act by my Administration, as well 
                as by State, local, Tribal, and territorial 

                Sec. 2. Implementation Priorities. In implementing the 
                Act, all agencies (as described in section 3502(1) of 
                title 44, United States Code, except for the agencies 
                described in section 3502(5) of title 44), shall, as 
                appropriate and to the extent consistent with law, 

                    (a) investing public dollars efficiently, working 
                to avoid waste, and focusing on measurable outcomes for 
                the American people;
                    (b) increasing the competitiveness of the United 
                States economy, including through implementing the 
                Act's Made-in-America requirements and bolstering 
                United States manufacturing and supply chains;
                    (c) improving job opportunities for millions of 
                Americans by focusing on high labor standards for these 
                jobs, including prevailing wages and the free and fair 
                chance to join a union;
                    (d) investing public dollars equitably, including 
                through the Justice40 Initiative, which is a 
                Government-wide effort toward a goal that 40 percent of 
                the overall benefits from Federal investments in 
                climate and clean energy flow to disadvantaged 
                    (e) building infrastructure that is resilient and 
                that helps combat the crisis of climate change; and
                    (f) effectively coordinating with State, local, 
                Tribal, and territorial governments in implementing 
                these critical investments.

                executive branch.
