The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was signed into law on November 15, 2021. This legislation is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Central Ohio and MORPC stands ready to bring this investment back to its members.
Based on formula funding alone, Ohio would expect to receive $9.2 billion for federal-aid highway apportioned programs and $483 million for bridge replacement over the next five years. There are numerous other funding opportunities, from earmarks to broadband grants to RAISE grants and more, that could have a transformative impact on your community and MORPC is here to help. As a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO ) and a Regional Council, MORPC is uniquely positioned to assist you in finding and competing for these needed dollars. Therefore, we are creating an intergovernmental investment team and hiring a grants officer that will be dedicated to bringing this investment back to our region.
