For too long, the conversation on national infrastructure has been limited to roads, bridges, and stalemates in Congress. This year, as the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the fiscal circumstances of many regions, communities recognize that high-speed broadband is an element of infrastructure needed in every home and business as a means of adapting to the socially distanced reality of the moment.

Climate-driven wildfires, derecho windstorms, and extraordinary coastal flooding warn that it's now more important than ever to develop innovative ways of strengthening resilience in people and places. Cross-sector leaders will discuss pathways to 21st-century infrastructure solutions that will help distressed communities across the country jumpstart local economies and create investment-ready projects.
