The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) marked the beginning of an anticipated dramatic uptick in projects involving transportation networks, broadband access, and public works. The IIJA made available $1.2 trillion in funding for infrastructure programs, including $550 billion in new federal spending. While there is plenty of funding to be had, getting it won’t necessarily be easy. Most IIJA funding will flow from the federal government to states and localities, which will decide where the money goes and will oversee execution of the funded projects.
