Tracking federal investments in our water system


The Water Program Portal collects public data and information related to the water funding elements of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). By aggregating crucial water policy program data, news, requests, and updates, the Portal provides users with the tools they need to prepare for and respond to key funding opportunities and developments. The Portal was developed by Atlas Public Policy with support from the Water Foundation’s Water Solution Fund and continues to be informed by a diverse group of stakeholders.

Water Program Portal data and publications are informed by IIJA and IRA bill text alongside key implementation materials and supporting resources from public agencies. The Portal also relies on input and guidance from partner organizations and the water policy community at large.

The Water Program Portal is in public beta meaning content and layout is expected to change. We are also interested in your feedback and ideas, so please drop us a line if you have thoughts on how we can improve the Portal.
