Local Infrastructure Hub

Profiling Local Innovation in Infrastructure


Since its passage in 2021, billions of dollars from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) have been deployed across all fifty states to fund hundreds of critical local infrastructure projects in communities big and small. While we’re witnessing unprecedented levels of engagement across BIL programs, still too many localities remain on the sidelines letting this once in a generation opportunity pass by. In an effort to inspire more cities and local leaders to get in the game, the Nowak Lab has partnered with Accelerator for America in joining the Local Infrastructure Hub to produce a series of Local Infrastructure Case Stories focused on specific programs within the BIL, Inflation Reduction Act, and other federal legislation.  


The stories layout the problem that needed solving, how local leaders approached project development, engaged partners and the community, and secured the total funding necessary for implementation. Featured stories show how infrastructure projects can be used to advance economic mobility, racial equity, environmental sustainability, and overall community resilience.
