Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) Resources

On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed into law the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). This bipartisan legislation invests $1.2 Trillion into transportation, utility, environmental, and broadband projects, in addition to other areas of infrastructure. Out of this pool of funds, Connecticut is expected to receive about $6 Billion dollars over five years. Municipalities will play a critical role in utilizing the funds to develop and implement projects.
