This includes $550 billion of new federal funding from transit to vehicle electrification. The following stimulus-funded focus areas are included in the IIJA:

Under the $1.9T ARP Act federal funding is being allocated, including $350B directly distributed to state and local governments, for uses that include the following:

Projects that are eligible for funds include, but are not limited to, facility upgrades, digitalization of processes, expansion of transit and broadband, increased capacity of wastewater plants and accessibility to clean water. 

Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act

Under the CARES Act, a change was made to the Internal Revenue Code to assign a 15-year recovery period to Qualified Improvement Property (QIP). Businesses can now treat QIP placed in service after December 31, 2017 and before January 1, 2023 as 15-year property, which makes it eligible for 100% bonus depreciation, allowing taxpayers to take a full deduction for the cost of eligible QIP in a single year. Learn more about what qualifies as a QIP and how Eaton’s products and services can help.

Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER)

Under ESSER, $13.2 billion of federal funding is accessible through state and local educational agencies to support public and private K-12 schools. ESSER funds have fallen under both the CARES Act and American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. Some of the projects that will qualify, include, but are not limited to facility repairs and upgrades to reopen schools safely, provide better air quality, modernize HVAC and improve IT infrastructure.
Congress is currently debating additional funding for infrastructure and green energy programs in the Build Back Better Act. Eaton is actively monitoring progress to ensure we know how to best support your needs.
