Infrastructure projects get second chance at INFRA grant funding
Washington, D.C. – Forty-four infrastructure projects around the country are getting another chance for Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).
INFRA Extra projects made it to the final round for funding under the 2021 INFRA competitive grant program but were not awarded due to a combination of overwhelming demand for INFRA grants and limited funds. Projects receiving the inaugural INFRA Extra designation will help rebuild America’s infrastructure and create jobs.
Some of the projects set to receive INFRA Extra funding are the:
- Broward County Port Everglades, Slip 1 Expansion.
