E-Scene March 2022

New IIJA/ Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill webpage

By: Elisa Bottos, State Aid Project Delivery Engineer

State Aid has created a new webpage on our website to collect and share the latest information on the new Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) passed into law in November 2021. The IIJA, or Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, is a once-in-a-generation investment in our infrastructure. Information on the webpage will mainly center around Discretionary Grants available to cities, counties, tribes and townships. State Aid will be sending out information to our distributions list, as well as updating the webpage as information becomes available. You can find a link to the page from our homepage and programs webpages, as well as directly at, http://www.dot.state.mn.us/stateaid/iija.html.

Currently we have information on how to apply for RAISE Grants, including prerecorded webinars from the FHWA. There is also information on requesting letters of support from MnDOT if a project involves MnDOT Trunk Highway.
