BIL/IIJA Funding Opportunities

BIL/IIJA Funding Opportunities

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 Grants.gov. However, some NOFOs are available on the sponsoring agency’s website. Below is a list of websites for several grant programs, for your reference.

Point of contact for BIL-related projects:  Elizabeth Sanderson.

Please complete the BIL General Interest Form to indicate your interest in a particular program, and to share what type of support you are seeking from CRCOG.

If your Town or Agency is seeking BIL funding for a project, and/or are interested in applying/partnering with CRCOG on any number of available or prospective funding opportunities, please complete the BIL General Interest Form , or e-mail Elizabeth Sanderson, BIL Coordinator and Principal Program Manager.

The BIL General Interest Form will be updated to include new programs as they are released.

While CRCOG will update this list periodically, please note that not all NOFOs or U.S. Government agencies may be included above. Please feel free to reach out with questions or comments, or if a U.S. department, agency, or organization sponsoring a BIL grant program you are interested in applying for is missing.

Let’s get to work bringing impactful, equitable, and sustainable changes to the Capitol Region!

FY2023 U.S. DOT Key Notices of Funding Opportunity Schedule: On January 6, 2023, the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) updated their list of Key Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). This Memorandum Memo_FY2023 US DOT Key Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)_20230124 summarizes the discretionary grant programs that may be most applicable to CRCOG and Member Towns, based on a review of available information provided by U.S. DOT as of January 2023. This is not an inclusive or exhaustive list and does not currently include programs for which NOFOs have already been issued (e.g., Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity, RAISE). Please visit U.S. DOT’s website for a complete list of programs.
