Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act (IIJA) and Inflation Reduction Act

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), provides approximately $1.2 trillion in funds. It represents an estimated $550 billion in new spending above baseline levels, while the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) represents $373 billion in financial incentives for clean energy and climate action.

Prioritize your infrastructure projects and seize this once in a generation funding opportunity.

GZA understands the technical and administrative support needs of the funding and financing methods available, including grants from federal, state, and private foundations, as well as municipal finance methods such as State Revolving Funds (SRF), stormwater utility fees, Tax Increment Financing (TIF) and bonding. These finance tools address:

After matching funding sources, our team can assist you with project scoping, cost estimating, and preparing grant applications.

Voters on November 8 authorized the New York State to issue $4.2 billion in bonds to finance projects for climate-mitigation, flood-risk reduction, water infrastructure, land conservation and recreation.

Little noted in news coverage is the multiplier effect of the state's funding:  proceeds from the state's bonds can qualify as the non-federal match for federally funded projects, thereby expanding the value of grants from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Inflation Reduction Act and other federal programs.

Member and Partner Announcements:

Corps Water Infrastructure Financing Program (CWIFP) is a Federal loan program administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers that provides low-cost, long-term loans for maintaining, upgrading, and repairing dams for non-Federal borrowers. Current appropriations enable the CWIFP to provide up to $7.5B+ in loans for maintaining, upgrading, and repairing dams for any non-Federal borrowers. The program is open to projects or bundles of projects that have a total cost of $20M or more.

Green Infrastructure Funding Microsite
The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) launched a new funding microsite for communities interested in pursuing federal funding and/or technical assistance for nature-based solutions and green infrastructure projects. The interactive database allows users to search and sort the more than 70 types of federal grants that fund nature-based solutions based on factors such as eligible recipients, project purpose, and the match required. It also provides information about the typical application cycles, and contact information for each program. Access the database here

New Roadmap to Accelerate Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Progress and Equity
The Whitehouse released a Roadmap and over 100 federal informational resources to scale-up nature-based solutions to address climate change, nature loss and inequity. The reports, announced in November during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) in Egypt, respond to a call from President Biden earlier this year to identify opportunities to expand the use of nature-based solutions across the federal government.
