The historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) allocated $1.2 trillion appropriated under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) to improve infrastructure, generate good-paying jobs, confront the climate crisis, grow the economy equitably, and create a transportation system that works for every American. Connecticut’s share is estimated to be $6.04 billion delivered in Fiscal Years 2022-2026, through a mix of funding.

CRCOG will assist member towns with planning and implementing infrastructure and other eligible projects that will optimize this historic funding opportunity. Notices of Funding (NOFOs), which contain important information about grant application requirements and submission deadlines, are periodically released by the various sponsoring agencies of the U.S. Government. Depending on the funding program, many NOFOs are accessible on However, some NOFOs are available on the sponsoring agency’s website. Below is a list of websites for several grant programs, for your reference.
