Future Infrastructure Funding Webinar: Video & Presentation

Watch our “Future Infrastructure Funding” webinar to get the latest on the CARES 2.0/HEROES Act and get an infrastructure outlook on the stimulus package, FAST Act reauthorization, appropriations and shovel ready.

< Back to All Insights

David Adelman (Principal and Director) and Dylan Mooers (Senior Associate) joined us on June 11th to share insights from Washington D.C. and the local levels about the CARES 2.0/HEROES Act. We got a deep dive into the infrastructure outlook and details regarding stimulus packages, FAST Act reauthorizations, appropriations and how to be “shovel ready” or “shovel worthy.” We also discussed client specific questions on public safety law enforcement funding, funding applications, and the Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure fund.
