U.S. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) Consulting

The United States Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides a unique opportunity to impact our communities at a grander scale with the right planning and execution. Understanding the funding categories and who is eligible to receive the funds requires a deeper analysis of individual grant policies.

Building a strong tomorrow for America—Together

Signed into law on November 15, 2022, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill authorizes $1.2 trillion for transportation and infrastructure spending with $550 billion set aside for new investments and grant opportunities over the next five years. Funding from the IIJA addresses water, transportation, energy, and broadband Internet infrastructure. Various new programs funded through this bill have the opportunity to provide additional resources needed to address a variety of local infrastructure needs.

How we can help

We work with municipalities to navigate the grant policy process and identify the funding that best aligns with the challenges each district/community is trying to solve. Many of the available grants require a longer-term strategy that starts with developing a pre-grant comprehensive plan that identifies critical infrastructure issues and defines the solutions systematically.

  • Pre-planning for grant positioning
  • Guidance in identifying critical IIJA opportunities
  • Grant writing and submission support
  • Funding oversight through program management
  • Project implementation and execution
