How the Federal Infrastructure Law Constrains Cities and Regions — and What to Do About it

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) is the most comprehensive infrastructure law passed by Congress in decades. Now the responsibility shifts outside Washington, as metropolitan leaders and practitioners must design the projects, put together the funding and financing, and hire the workers to deliver long-term value. This webinar will feature a panel of local leaders who will explore constraints felt by cities and regions as they look to capture the potential value built into the infrastructure law. Then we will end by thinking about the kinds of solutions that regions could explore or replicate from peers. The session will end with an open discussion and audience Q&A.
