The U.S. Corps of Engineers will invest $14 billion to strengthen port and waterway supply chains, the White House said in a fact sheet on Wednesday.
As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Corps will use funds to increase climate resilience and improve ports and waterways, the White House said. The Infrastructure Law funds will be supplemented by other appropriations to help impacted states and Tribes recover from natural disasters and become more resilient to them in the future. The money will fund over 500 projects across 52 states and territories.
