The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Section 13007 (Workforce Development, Training, and Education) gives states the flexibility to fund surface transportation workforce development activities, subject to approval by DOT. States can use unlimited funds from four large federal-aid highway programs: National Highway
Performance Program, Surface Transportation Block Grant Program, Highway Safety Improvement Program, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law dramatically expands the amount of potential funding for workforce development. Furthermore, the law expands the number and type of project eligibilities.
