Deep Dive: Deployment of High Demand Community Infrastructure Projects

Deep Dive: Deployment of High Demand Community Infrastructure Projects

While there are a handful of critically important Hoover Dam-scale projects in the US, long-range electricity transmission lines, offshore wind farms, critical upgrades for bridges and ports, there are over 20,000 community-scale projects in high-demand areas that receive less attention. Ranging from $2 million to $150 million in scale, they include upgrades to community broadband, energy grids, and water systems; and improvements to the built environment. How do we help underserved communities access impact capital to execute these plans most efficiently? How can larger investors and muni investors help build new, innovative portfolios of these lower profile but vital projects?
