Joining forces on Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act plans and projects

An important webinar for engineers

The $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA or Act) that was signed into law on Nov. 15, 2021, will provide more than $550 billion in new federal investments in America’s infrastructure over the next five years. The Act includes billions of dollars in funding for roads, bridges, public transportation, public power, water and sewer utilities, broadband and environmental remediation, which combined with American Rescue Plan funding, will assist communities across the U.S. to recover, grow and sustain their economies post-pandemic. This long-term investment in infrastructure projects is also expected to drive millions of jobs for years to come.

Baker Tilly has a long history of working closely with city and consulting engineers to help communities uncover successful solutions to meet their infrastructure needs. We invite you to join Baker Tilly’s public sector specialists for a webinar breaking down the IIJA funding and identifying collaborative opportunities to enhance community resilience.

Attendees will also receive a live demonstration of Baker Tilly’s water and sewer rate impact tool to make revolving loan fund applications easier.
