The 2022 Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA): A Reference Summary for Clean Air Agencies
In the wake of this weekend’s passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, here is a quick and informal brief for the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) members that unpacks what’s in the law in plain English. This quick NACAA brief includes three sections: a summary of the overall provisions and two lists of all the programs funded by the IRA (one for all the funding going through EPA, and one for funding going through other Federal agencies). These lists include the purpose, dollar amount, eligible recipients, and the page number of the bill so you can go look for yourself what Congress intended for the money. More news to follow!
