Message of the Month: EPA’s National Estuary Program received an unprecedented investment of $132 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law over the next five years for important work to protect and restore 28 estuaries of national significance, funding projects to address climate resilience, prioritize equity and manage other key water quality and habitat challenges. EPA Administrator Michael Regan highlighted the historic investment during a visit to Caño Martín Peña tidal channel in the San Juan Bay Estuary system as part of his Journey to Justice tour visit to Puerto Rico. The Urban Waters Federal Partnership was cited in the National Estuary Program Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding Implementation Memorandum for Fiscal Years 2022-2026 to connect and outline complementary collaborative efforts.
