The Biden administration is putting $830 million toward helping protect bridges, roads, ports and other infrastructure from extreme weather disasters fueled by climate change. 

The $830 million in grants from the Transportation Department will support 80 projects in 37 states, Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands.

Most of the funding, $621 million, will go toward 36 projects aimed at bolstering the resilience of existing infrastructure through efforts such as improving draining, moving roadways, and lifting up bridges.

An additional $119 million will go toward protecting, strengthening, or removing at-risk coastal infrastructure such as highways.

The rest of the funding goes to improving evacuation routes or helping improve resilience plans.
