The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is awarding Pennsylvania over $240 million from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to improve water infrastructure. 

This funding will supplement the $67 million awarded to the state for its Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds in the 2022 fiscal year. 

The funding will be used to help communities access safe, clean water, repair aging pipes, collect and treat wastewater and build resiliency in the face of extreme weather events. 

The funding will go to PENNVEST and will advance the Biden Administration's Justice40 initiative
