News: The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) the Nevada Way

OFA is pleased to announce the new collaboration underway with the Governor’s Office and the Nevada State Infrastructure Coordinator, Bob Lucey. As the single largest long-term investment in infrastructure, OFA is poised to support Nevada’s efforts to secure competitive federal IIJA grant dollars for the repair and modernization of our infrastructure.

Also referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), to date, $1.8 billion in formula funding has been announced and is headed to Nevada with over 107 projects identified for funding. As a centralized support, OFA, in coordination with the Governor’s Office and State Infrastructure coordinator will support stakeholders in their search and application to these grants to increase access to these critical and competitive infrastructure federal dollars.
