The White House recently released a guidebook outlining resources available to local governments from last November’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
Yesterday the White House put our new local government guidebook for November’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The guidebook is meant to be a one-stop-shop on the law and contains the most comprehensive information to date on the more than 375 programs included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
According to the press release:
“This resource is a critical part of our extensive outreach to state, local, tribal and territorial governments to ensure the people of America can benefit from this once-in-a-generation investment,” said Mitch Landrieu, Senior Advisor & Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator. “Building a better America is a shared endeavor no one can do alone, and investing infrastructure dollars will require significant coordination between the federal government, cities, states, Tribal governments, community members, and other key partners. Our primary goal is to empower people across the country with information, so they know what to apply for, who to contact, and how to get ready to rebuild.”
The guidebook is meant to point counties towards new programs and serve as an explanatory document that shows direct federal spending at the program level. The guidebook contains 12 chapters grouping Bipartisan Infrastructure Law programs by issue area. Each chapter contains a cover note explaining how to get ready to receive this funding, and these memoranda also identify additional resources our partners can and should utilize to prepare, while the federal government gets ready to distribute Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funds from new and existing programs.
To help stakeholders better understand how to use this document and hear the latest updates on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law implementation, we are hosting two webinars over the next week:
