The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is enhancing and expanding the IAC Program: The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $550 million to expand the IAC Program, create regional centers of excellence, and implement centers’ recommendations to support the Biden-Harris administration’s goals of creating pathways to high-quality jobs with the free and fair choice to join a union, reducing industrial emissions, and enhancing American manufacturing competitiveness in a net-zero economy. 

Centers of Excellence: DOE has competitively-selected five new Regional Centers of Excellence to enhance and expand the IAC Program for $18.75 million.  These new Centers will serve as regional hubs that collaborate and coordinate with government, nonprofit, labor, and industry actors to train clean energy workers and support SMMs in their respective regions.
