Murkowski Announces Details of Upcoming Grant Symposium
On Monday, April 11, 2022, U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), a lead author and negotiator of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, will host a federal grant symposium at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, Alaska.
The purpose of the symposium is to provide Alaskans with a better understanding of the unprecedented opportunities made possible by the bipartisan infrastructure law, which provides for historic investments in core physical infrastructure—roads, bridges, rail, transit, ports, airports, energy, water systems, and broadband.
The infrastructure law will allocate funding to over 350 distinct programs run by more than a dozen federal departments and agencies over the next several years. Federal representatives will be present to answer questions about programs and resources the law is making available. Officials from several state agencies – which are responsible for the allocation of significant formula funding from the new law – will also be on hand.
The event is free and open to the public.
“Our bipartisan infrastructure law provides for truly historic investments that will benefit communities across Alaska for years to come. I’m hosting this symposium to help Alaskans understand and maximize the assistance we bring to our state to improve, maintain, and upgrade our infrastructure,” said Senator Murkowski. “Any Alaskan who is interested is welcome to attend, and I look forward to connecting those who do with our federal and state partners.”
