Investment in infrastructure is critical to the economic development of this nation.  Not only does it pay for much needed transportation projects, but it is a job creator, a revenue generator, and a helps promote partnerships between a variety of stakeholders.  With federal funding in jeopardy, states and localities are having to explore new funding options to pay for their transportation infrastructure investments.

The National League of Cities, along with the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, will be hosting this webinar to help participants understand the ins and outs of alternative financing and funding mechanisms.  Presenters will explore a variety of sources and what contributes to an effective “financing toolkit.”  Participants will hear from speakers from Austin, TX and Tampa-Hillsborough, FL on how they are collaborating with key stakeholders on transportation financing options that best serve their communities.
