The Inflation Reduction Act Program Office

Treasury leadership created a new Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) Program Office, led by a Chief Implementation Officer, to serve as the Department’s coordination hub for implementation of the IRA’s provisions. The Office partners with other Treasury offices, the IRS, the White House, and other federal agencies to provide internal and external coordination and offer additional capacity and support as the IRS delivers on modernization plans and as taxpayers utilize the law’s clean energy tax incentives.


The team’s mission is to enable effective and efficient execution of IRA priorities and outcomes by:

  • Providing additional internal and external stakeholder engagement capacity;
  • Facilitating effective public narrative building, data analysis, operational improvements, problem solving; and
  • Elevating opportunities for more effective and equitable implementation, and identifying and addressing any barriers or gaps that would impede these efforts.
