Cities are Ready to Rebuild

America’s local leaders are ready to rebuild their infrastructure and make their cities better places to live. They see the disparities created by inequitable infrastructure investment in the past and can streamline rebuilding because they understand the most pressing needs in their communities and have every incentive to follow through quickly.

As Congress finalizes a long-overdue infrastructure package and a budget, local leaders now have the opportunity to share with Congress how your city will use the federal partnership to the greatest potential and establish plans that correlate with federal programs. Cities’ preparation matters now to advance long-term infrastructure goals. In this conversation, our mayors will discuss how critical programs authorized in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and budget will help their cities.
