PSRC helps communities secure federal funding for transportation projects.

BIL Funding Webinar

On July 29, 2022, PSRC hosted a webinar to review information on the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), and provide a high level summary of transportation funding and current federal grant opportunities.

A recording of the webinar, presentation slides and Overview of Selected BIL Discretionary Programs spreadsheet are available below.
