American Rescue Plan Webinar: Opportunities to Fund Water Infrastructure Priorities

Date: Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Time: 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Register for the Webinar:


The American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) established the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds; an allocation of $65.1 billion for local government use to respond to acute pandemic response needs, fill revenue shortfalls and support hard-hit communities. It also allows funds to be used for “necessary investments in water, sewer or broadband infrastructure.”

This 1.5-hour webinar will provide an overview of the ARP, detail how funds can support stormwater and wastewater, share several examples of local government plans for funding, and a follow-up document with jurisdiction and national resources for additional questions. The webinar goals are to address questions, learn of examples, and consider funding projects that address long-standing water infrastructure needs.
