The NACo Counties Futures Lab recently released a report titled, Investing in America’s Infrastructure County Funding for Capital Facilities. The report details how population and economic growth, the costs of state and federal permitting, and issues in funding and financing infrastructure present challenges for counties in building facilities. The report also presents three case studies: Montgomery County, Md., Dallas County, Texas and San Juan County, N.M. have all found alternative funding solutions and strategies for infrastructure projects.
Investing in America’s Infrastructure County Funding for Capital Facilities features three takeaways to help counties in their capital needs:
- Leverage existing county assets
- No debt does not mean no capital projects, and
- Be willing to consider funding structures not tried before.
