Twenty-one local infrastructure projects across the state have received funding through the Rebuild Alabama Act, the state’s annual grant program that was signed into law in 2019. This year’s initial funding award totals $4.93 million.
“More and more Alabamians are seeing road projects in their communities,” said Ivey. “As we near the second anniversary of the passage of the Rebuild Alabama Act, we are showing the people of our state that we are true to our word, and money is being spent wisely.”
Of the 21 projects selected, 17 cities and counties are also contributing a total of $2.08 million in local matching funds.
An additional round of local infrastructure projects is expected later this year. It is anticipated that a number of the projects will be under contract by the end of this year. All projects are required to move forward within one year of the awarding of funds.
