The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will provide over $550 billion dollars for infrastructure investments. This will be spent across 10 priorities, over 5 fiscal years, and across 50 states. What does this mean for infrastructure in the Commonwealth? How much funding can the state expect? How will the funds be allocated? Who will receive the funding and how will it be distributed? This first session will create a foundation for the subsequent discussions with a specific and concrete understanding of what the funding means for Massachusetts and the types of infrastructure investments that can occur. The session will provide both an overview of all priorities in the law and begin to focus on transportation infrastructure, which will be the focus of subsequent sessions.
