Delivering the infrastructure decade: Addressing implementation challenges at the state and local level

Thursday, May 18, 2023

1775 Massachusetts Avenue N.W.
Washington, DC

With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), funds are actively flowing into states and localities. That means the hard work now passes to cities, counties, and states to get the greatest value out of the new laws—but also puts the greatest pressure on officials outside Washington to come up with solutions.

On Thursday, May 18, Brookings Metro, as part of the national United for Infrastructure Week 2023, will host an event focused on the implementation challenges confronting states and communities. Speakers with expertise across multiple infrastructure sectors will address many of the fiscal, workforce, and equity concerns that public officials now face—and offer solutions to help overcome them.

Viewers can submit questions for speakers by emailing [email protected] or via Twitter using #InfrastructureImplementation.
