Regional Infrastructure Development Summits


The Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act (IIJA), also commonly referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), offers Colorado communities many funding opportunities for a wide variety of projects. Matching projects to available funding sources, putting together a successful application, and understanding the administrative obligations that go with federal funding can all feel overwhelming.

To assist local governments in navigating the IIJA, the State of Colorado hosted a series of regional summits to provide information about IIJA opportunities and what must be done to successfully apply for and administer funds. 

Thank you to those who were able to join us at these summits. We hope you were able to gain insightful information. We will continue to provide resources and guidance through a bi-weekly email. If you are not receiving the bi-weekly email but would like to be added, let know!
