TFG and ICMA to Hold Infrastructure Funding Webinar for Local Government Leaders

Participants will learn what is included in the bipartisan infrastructure package and its implications for local governments.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Ferguson Group (TFG) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) invite local government leaders to join the “New Infrastructure Funding: An Overview for Local Government Leaders” webinar on Friday, November 19, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Federal funding experts Jennifer Imo, TFG Managing Partner for Client Services, Zachary Israel, TFG Principal, and Elizabeth Kellar, ICMA Director of Public Policy and Disaster Recovery, will review and provide guidance on the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) recently signed into law.

“The passage of the IIJA is incredibly exciting for local governments,” said Jennifer Imo, Managing Partner of Client Services “The bill not only boosts funding for existing programs, but creates entirely new programs to meet communities’ modern needs. It’s critical that leaders prepare in advance, so they are in the best position to advocate for and fund their infrastructure needs. We’re here to help with that.”

The IIJA includes $1.2 trillion in funding over 10 years, including:

  • $110 billion for road and bridge repair
  • $89.9 billion for public transit
  • $66 billion for passenger and freight rail modernization
  • $65 billion for renewable energy expansion
  • $65 billion for broadband
  • $55 billion for lead pipe abatement and clean drinking water
  • $50+ billion for environmental resiliency initiatives
  • $25 billion for airport repair and maintenance
  • $21 billion to clean Superfund and Brownfield sites
  • $7.5 billion to build 500,000 electric vehicle chargers

The IIJA is one of the largest federal investments in infrastructure in nearly half a century. State and local governments will largely be responsible to prepare, design, and implement these projects. The “New Infrastructure Funding: An Overview for Local Government Leaders” webinar will provide the information and resources leaders need as a first step to effectively utilize these funds once they become available.
