The USDOT has released the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Fiscal Year 17-18 Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) Discretionary Grant (https://www.transportation.gov/buildamerica/infragrants). This year $1.5 billion is made available for projects that will revitalize, repair and rebuild America’s infrastructure.

The new program is expected to increase the impact of projects by leveraging capital and allowing innovation in the project delivery and permitting processes, including public-private partnerships.
