IIJA and Federal Infrastructure Policy and Funding Resources
Empowering You and Our Infrastructure
On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill. This legislation represents a generational investment in roads, bridges, transit, passenger and freight rail, ports and airports, delivering clean water, moving toward greater renewable energy production, and closing the digital divide by expanding broadband deployment. The IIJA increases funding and modifies eligibility to existing programs and creates new funding programs to restore and rebuild the nation’s infrastructure.
We are committed to empowering our clients to advance infrastructure, pulling out the key information in the bill that our clients need to plan their programs and secure new funding. We also monitor the federal policies affecting infrastructure and provide analysis that will help our clients successfully deliver their projects. Check back regularly to gain insights from our policy experts, learn more about specific types of infrastructure touched by the IIJA, how we can help our clients optimize the opportunities presented by this new legislation, and other important policy updates.
