Infrastructure Funding Reporting and Engagement Service

Stateside has partnered with BGR Group to provide a new service: Infrastructure Funding Reporting and Engagement.

BGR and Stateside Partner

 

Congress passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) in November 2021. The act authorizes $973 billion in infrastructure spending—from seven federal agencies to all 50 states, five major territories, the District of Columbia, and federally recognized tribes—over the next five years.

A complex web of new programs and agencies to administer this historic investment is already taking shape. While guidance on implementation is still emerging, it’s clear that organizations looking to leverage or even track federal funding will be faced with a challenging and potentially massive undertaking.

Stateside's Infrastructure Team brings together multidisciplinary policy expertise, in-depth knowledge of the policymaking process, and a network of trusted in-state contacts to help your organization navigate the grantmaking process — from the federal government to the states and through state agencies to programs.

In addition to Stateside's Infrastructure Team, we are partnering with BGR Group on this new service. BGR's bipartisan Commerce and Infrastructure Practice in Washington, D.C., will bring their extensive policy background and strong relationships on Capitol Hill and in the Biden Administration to help engage on the federal level as guidelines are written for the new state and local grant programs. 

Our service includes a 50-state profile report with options for customization all the way up to direct engagement.
