Harnessing Equitable Benefits of Infrastructure Investment

ASCE believes all communities should be able to experience the benefits of modern, reliable infrastructure. Many communities endure burdens because they lack proper infrastructure. More efforts are needed to achieve fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people. Burdens have also taken the form of infrastructure designed and placed without equitable and inclusive engagement with affected communities. 

Through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act, communities across America are currently receiving once-in-a-generation levels of infrastructure investment from the federal government. Many programs funded or established by these laws must follow the Justice40 initiative established by the Biden Administration, which requires 40 percent of federal spending from certain programs, including energy and infrastructure, to go to disadvantaged communities.

Featuring Shareen Crosby (Infrastructure Investment Coordinator, Office of Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy) and Maria Elena Giner (Commissioner, International Boundary and Water Commission), and Darren Olson, P.E., D.WRE, CFM, CPESC (Department Head of Water Resources, Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd.), learn how both urban and rural communities can successfully chart a more equitable, data-driven path into the future.
