July 12th, 2022 9:30 am - 11:30 am

The Alliance, in partnership with the National Association of CountiesNational League of CitiesMaryland Association of CountiesMaryland Municipal LeagueVirginia Association of Counties, and Virginia Municipal League, is pleased to share its Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Webinar: Opportunities to Invest in Water Infrastructure Using State Revolving Funds, Tuesday, July 12, 2022, from 9:30 am – 11:30 am, hosted by the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Local Government Advisory Committee.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) includes billions of dollars in competitive funding available to cities, towns, and municipalities across dozens of new and existing programs. As local governments begin to rebuild and reinvest in their communities, there are federal resources to support local leaders as they combine funding streams, organize around their priorities, and build local support for long overdue infrastructure projects. States are coordinating funds through their Drinking Water and Clean Water State Revolving Funds programs.

This 2 hour webinar will provide an overview of the IIJA as it can support water, share current jurisdiction plans for the resource and offer local government examples for funding. The goal is to address questions, learn of jurisdiction plans and consider funding projects that address long standing water infrastructure needs.

Speakers include:

  • Jasmine Gore, Local Government Advisory Committee (LGAC) Chair and City Councilmember, Hopewell, VA
  • Maggy Cunningham, Regional CWSRF Coordinator, EPA
  • Carolyn Berndt, Legislative Director – Sustainability, National League of Cities
