Public infrastructure gets $41 million boost

>Chicago Construction News staff writer

A total of $41 million has been awarded to 32 communities for critical repairs to water, sewer, and drainage infrastructure

“Every community in Illinois deserves access to clean drinking water, regardless of where they live,” Gov. JB Pritzker said in a statement. “With the support of our federal partners, communities across the state will receive the resources they need to upgrade their water, sewer, and drainage infrastructure system. These projects will benefit the health and wellness of their residents for years to come.”

Public infrastructure grants provide communities with funding to improve public infrastructure and public health and quality of life. These projects include construction of storm sewer pipes, waterline replacements, and water storage tank construction, and other critical projects that help mitigate flooding and support sewage management, water delivery and other public water necessities.

Local governments are receiving grants of up to $1.5 million with an average grant size of $1.2 million. Preference was given to projects located in underserved areas, opportunity zones, and those which proposed a non-state matching component to drive the maximum investment to the area.
