But with every passing day that Russian troops are in Ukraine, it becomes harder for their friends and family back home to access and share independent news of what is happening.

Last month, following the signing of the bipartisan infrastructure law in November, the White House released an infrastructure law guidebook. The guidebook is meant to provide information to American communities, so they know what to apply for, who to contact, and how to get ready to rebuild.  

This guidebook is a roadmap to the funding available under the law, as well as an explanatory document that shows direct federal spending at the program level.
