The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), now referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), was approved by Congress in November 2021 and provides $1.2 trillion in infrastructure funding over five years. BIL includes $550 million in new transportation funding, and establishes more than a dozen new transportation grant funding programs.
In May, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released details for the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) program that provides $5-6 billion in grants over the next five years for MPOs and localities to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries. The funding covers comprehensive safety studies, and also buildable projects ranging from smaller projects such as pedestrian lighting to larger intersection improvements such as roundabouts.
Learn more by watching an informational webinar recording about SS4A, and subscribe to email updates to be notified when additional information is available for the SS4A program. Visit the BIL website to stay up-to-date on all of the funding programs as they are announced.
