    USDOT Bridge Investment Program Webinar for Local Governments

    As owners and operators of more bridges than any other level of government, counties play an extremely significant role in the nation’s transportation network. To ensure the safety and continued viability of this network, counties welcome federal support through programs like the recently announced U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Bridge Investment Program (BIP) to operate, maintain and enhance our infrastructure systems that keep our residents and others connected with one another, as well as vital services and institutions.  Join NACo, USDOT and other government officials for a technical assistance webinar to learn more about the Bridge Investment Program.

    About the Bridge Investment Program

    On June 10, USDOT released a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for $2.36 billion in FY 2022 through the competitive BIP. Newly established by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law(BIL/P.L. 117-58), the program will provide $12.5 billion over the next five years to reduce the number of the nation’s bridges in poor condition or, in fair condition, but at risk of falling into poor condition within the next three years.

    Counties are eligible to apply for BIP funding directly through USDOT, as well as to bundle bridge projects into one application. Twenty million is reserved for the planning application category outlined below. In total, the NOFO is soliciting applications for three different funding categories:

    • Planning: For projects requiring technical assistance to become eligible for BIP capital construction funds | Applications due July 25, 2022
    • Large bridge projects: For projects with eligible costs over $100 million | Applications due August 9, 2022
    • Bridge projects: For projects with eligible costs less than $100 million | Applications due September 8, 2022

    Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis by USDOT to projects that replace, rehabilitate, preserve and protect bridges on the National Bridge Inventory (NBI) by improving the safe and efficient movement of people and goods over bridges or by improving the condition of bridges in poor and at-risk conditions.

    Join NACo, USDOT and other government officials for a technical assistance webinar to learn more about the Bridge Investment Program.
