Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Webinar Series – Opportunities for Local Communities

The Maine Municipal Association and the Governor’s Infrastructure Implementation Committee invite you to join representatives from the State for a series of informational webinars on federal infrastructure funding and program opportunities for Maine communities, including those in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act. The series will be of particular relevance to officials from municipal, county, and tribal governments in Maine, as well as staff from regional planning organizations and other local technical assistance groups. Each session will cover a category of infrastructure investment, review current projects, explain funding processes, highlight available and upcoming programs, and offer opportunities for Q&A.
 
The Mills Administration is committed to ensuring Maine people and communities receive the greatest possible benefit from the transformative opportunities funded through these laws. To maximize the benefits for Maine, staff from the Governor’s Office and the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future (GOPIF) are coordinating State infrastructure funding activity through the Governor’s Infrastructure Implementation Committee.
