Rep. Castor Announces New Roadmap for Tampa Bay Citizens and Community Leaders under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

The “Building a Better America“ Guidebook provides strategic information for competitive grants

Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) joined President Joe Biden in announcing the ‘Building a Better America’ Guidebook to aid Tampa Bay area citizens and community leaders in applications for competitive grants under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This Guidebook highlights how our local community can take full advantage of urgently-needed infrastructure funding for road maintenance, expanded public transit, airport upgrades, better Tampa Bay water quality and other critical projects.

The Guidebook can be accessed here.

“Thanks to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Tampa Bay area already has secured $17 million for Port Tampa Bay and for roadway improvements. I want my local partners to be ready to win competitive grants to help lower costs, ease congestion and create jobs. This new Guidebook will ensure that Tampa area partners have the information necessary to deliver on Tampa’s priorities as we Build Back Better,” said Rep. Castor.

The Administration’s new Guidebook provides key information on all available funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, totaling more than 350 distinct programs supporting a wide range of infrastructure projects. This Guide outlines eligibility criteria, application deadlines and contact information, as well as additional resources to help navigate these programs.
