Rebuild With Us
It’s Time for Congress to Work with Cities to Rebuild and Reimagine America’s Infrastructure
America's infrastructure problems cannot wait. Our transportation network is a knot of congestion and disrepair, our Internet lags behind the rest of the world, families drink from bottled water in the absence of safe tap water, and all the while, federal partnership for infrastructure has faltered, allowing America to fall behind an ever increasing demand.
Cities know that it is time to rebuild and reimagine America’s infrastructure. We are leading the way in building intermodal, sustainable and interconnected infrastructure networks that support a modern economy.
The nation's cities call on Congress to partner with us and invest in our vision to rebuild and reimagine America’s infrastructure.
From May 14 through May 21, NLC and our partners around the United States are participating in Infrastructure Week 2018 to raise awareness about our nation's infrastructure investment needs. Infrastructure Week is a national week of education and advocacy to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting America's economy, society, security and future.
Join NLC in advocating for infrastructure investment by writing an op-ed featuring your city's infrastructure story or planning an infrastructure site visit. Click on the Take Action button below to access our Rebuild With Us action guides.

National City-County Leadership Center, 660 North Capitol Street, NW
Policymakers, industry experts, and city leaders agree – we must rebuild America’s infrastructure before it’s too late. But, it's not just about finding the necessary funds to fix physical infrastructure, it's also about investing in the workforce that will design, build and maintain these complex systems. From fixing water main breaks and potholes in streets, to thinking about the future and the possibilities of newer and smarter assets that weave broadband, sustainability and smart technology into the fabric of our communities, all infrastructure sectors require skilled individuals to maintain and optimize America’s infrastructure.
Join us for a panel discussion to learn more about what it takes to develop the workforce that will reimagine and rebuild our nation’s essential infrastructure. Following the program, please join us for a rooftop reception for networking and conversations about the future of our nation's workforce.
Registration for this event also includes registration for the reception. This event adheres to both the House and Senate Ethics Committees’ guidelines regarding widely attended events.
