The passage of H.R.3684 – the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act – ensures daily commutes across metropolitan cities and small towns will be improved. The bill reauthorizes surface transportation programs for five years and invests $110 billion in additional funding. The bill also guarantees $89.9 billion for public transit over the next five years between reauthorizations and new funding. Highways and bridges will be repaired, intersections redesigned, designated bus lanes created, bicycle lanes protected, and commuter rail services expanded.
Join us as our expert panel discusses the fundamentals of upcoming infrastructure projects and how they will affect our daily lives and commutes.Virtual Meeting
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will improve the way Americans travel, as well as how goods and materials are transported. With the current economic state occurring from a multitude of issues, improving our transportation infrastructure is more important than ever.
IIJA has earmarked $25 billion for airports, $66 billion for railways, and $100 billion in competitive grants for projects focused on moving freight. These grants will help unblock delivery channels and clear bottlenecked supply chains. Electric vehicle charging infrastructure will also be addressed with $7.5 billion in funding. Additionally, $5 billion is allocated for electric school buses and cleaner alternatives.
Join our expert panel as we discuss how the funds from IIJA will address the current and future infrastructure needs for Americans, their goods, and the ability to travel.Virtual Meeting
This session of the Infrastructure 2022 series will focus on clean water, electrical grid and powerline resiliency, and closing the digital divide as it pertains to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there are an estimated six to 10 million lead service lines across the country. Cities have been taking measures to finance projects that identify and remove the bad lines, but it hasn’t been enough. The U.S. is ranked 26th in the world for safe drinking water and sanitation by the Environmental Performance Index. Knowing that access to clean drinking water is a basic human right, the IIJA allocated $55 billion to further reach this goal.
In January 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy launched the Building a Better Grid Initiative to make the nation’s power grid more resilient to the impacts of climate change and increase access to reliable and affordable clean energy. The IIJA earmarked $28 billion for resiliency of powerlines and over $60 billion total for clean energy.
Closing the digital divide is more important than ever in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Americans need access to high-speed internet for work, study, and play. Lack of access to broadband infrastructure has become an equality issue in the U.S. The IIJA will work to combat this by delivering more than $60 billion in funds to expand access to high-speed networks throughout the nation.Virtual Meeting
This session of the Infrastructure 2022 webinar series will highlight disaster preparation projects to address worsening natural disasters. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) is the largest-ever federal investment in climate change.
The IIJA earmarked $8 billion for wildfire management, $6 billion for drought management, $8.3 billion for water storage and sanitation, and $12.5 billion for flood mitigation. Funds will be filtered through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and U.S. Department of the Interior to state and local governments.
Join our expert panel, as they discuss community resilience, the role infrastructure plays, challenges and opportunities, and perspectives from researchers, practitioners, federal programs, and policymakers.Virtual Meeting
