Washington, D.C. — Today, the Center for American Progress launched a new tool to track the public and private investments made possible by major economic legislation signed into law by President Joe Biden. Specifically, the searchable and exportable database catalogs information on investments stemming from the Inflation Reduction Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The tool allows users to filter these investments by a host of different factors, including public or private investment; category or sector; state; city or town; congressional district; funding amount; and/or keyword.
The information included in the tracker is aggregated from several different sources, including USAspending.gov, Build.gov, agency press releases, press clips, vetted information from local officials, and company press releases. It will also include leads for storytellers with a connection to individual projects as well as in-depth spotlights providing greater context and detail on the benefits and impacts of these investments.
“The United States has not made this scale of investment in growing the economy and creating new well-paying jobs since it created the interstate highway system in the 1950s. It’s not enough to tell Americans government can still help deliver greater economic opportunities—you have to actually show them. This tool helps solve for that challenge,” said Will Ragland, senior director of research at the Center for American Progress.

The tracker is a live resource and will be updated routinely to capture more data and information pertaining to these investments as it becomes available. Users with new information are encouraged to reach out to CAP at InvestmentTracker@americanprogress.org.
