Recent historic federal investments in the country’s infrastructure create opportunities for states to access new funding and also challenge states to track information associated with funding from many different sources. ECOS will use this page to share relevant information for states interested in resources about federal infrastructure investments, including the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
Since the available funding spans many federal agencies and media areas, this collection of resources is a central location for information about funding opportunities, including announcements of funding availability, applications and deadlines, published guidance documents, informational webinars and fact sheets, and other resources. This information should assist states with the process of tracking various funding opportunities and make it easier to take advantage of and communicate about available funding that is appropriate for their state’s needs and communities.
ECOS created the Infrastructure Workgroup in 2022 to improve communication with and among states about the influx of federal infrastructure funding opportunities, to identify barriers to accessing or disseminating funding, provide feedback to U.S. EPA and other federal partners, and share best practices among states.
ECOS launched the Climate and Energy Workgroup in November 2022 to promote integrated, successful, adaptable, and sustainable environmental solutions for reducing carbon pollution, advancing clean energy economies, and increasing the resiliency and vibrancy of communities and ecosystems.
