Maximizing Outcomes

Jan Vrins Discusses the Impact of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)

Impact of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

The scope of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is historic. It's the largest investment ever in broadband, transportation, clean energy, water, and other sectors, allocated among more than 350 programs. The need is as momentous as its size: As the effects of climate change on communities and infrastructure become more apparent, cities, states, and energy companies must create more resilient systems to mitigate threats and avoid significant future costs. At the same time, these investments aim to create well-paying jobs and support underserved communities.

Federal Agencies link-arrow

More than a dozen federal agencies are tasked with implementing over 350 programs under the infrastructure law. These agencies must coordinate efforts between management, technology, engineering, and finance to execute complex projects.

State & Local Agencies link-arrow

Under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, state and local governments will be eligible for a variety of federally funded grants, including both formula and competitive opportunities. Competitive grant applications will require extensive strategy and planning around infrastructure, broadband, and transportation, including electric vehicles. Grants management will be an additional challenge.
