Water Infrastructure Funding

Water Infrastucture Funding

The longer we wait to tackle deteriorating infrastructure, the more difficult and expensive the remedy will be. NUCA must help lawmakers understand the scope of our infrastructure needs, as well as the economic benefits of investing in solutions. NUCA must work to secure strong funding for existing programs that support infrastructure and explore other policies to help states and localities address their water needs.

The study also provides information about federal spending on water infrastructure projects in recent decades.
