Now is the time for the Biden Administration and Congress to address America's aging building infrastructure.

The American Jobs Plan, as proposed by the current Administration, includes significant investment in our nation's public building infrastructure. AIA is calling on members of Congress to craft bipartisan legislation to turn these investment proposals into reality. For more details on the proposals related to AIA priorities, click here.

Addressing our infrastructure needs now, especially as the nation rebuilds after the pandemic, makes sense for the economy and the future. It will boost the economic recovery, provide good-paying jobs, and improve our public buildings—including schools, hospitals, civic centers, and affordable housing.

While architects are eager to join with Congress to build America's 21st-century infrastructure, to meet this challenge Congress must act NOW—and WE MUST ACT NOW by voicing our support for an infrastructure plan!

Let your member of Congress know: AIA supports federal investment in our aging building infrastructure and needs bipartisan solutions to address those critical needs. Tell them AIA stands ready to be a valuable resource and advisor as to how retrofitting and new construction can make buildings more resilient energy efficient, and better performing in order to meet the needs of the 21st century.
