This year, infrastructure week means more than it has in years past. For starters, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL)—a once-in-a-generation investment—was passed, along with other bills and initiatives that are funneling spending resources into the USA’s infrastructure. With an increased focus on public infrastructure and a larger pocketbook to pull from, everyone from infrastructure owners and local governments to utility organizations are wondering how they can utilize those funds to best prepare for the future.
When it comes to the application of funding resources, it is not a one size fits all solution. Every community’s infrastructure and asset management needs look different, therefore each approach will vary. Here are three resources that can help you understand infrastructure funding and how Cityworks can help you develop various strategies to ensure that your community’s public assets will thrive for years to come:
A handful of new bills and packages aim to increase funding for infrastructural improvements in the U.S., ranging from water and wastewater to roads and electricity. These bills and packages have the potential to create opportunities for local governments and utilities to bring their community services up to date. Here are a couple of developments to keep your eye on in the coming months.
Infrastructure policies such as the American Rescue Plan (ARPA) and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) are freeing up 3 trillion dollars of funding resources to be funneled into infrastructural improvement projects in the U.S. John Konkus, director of government affairs & chief political strategist for Woolpert, shares how organizations can take advantage of the unprecedented funding opportunities created by these infrastructure policies.
