The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s Benefits for Small Businesses
Tuesday, February 15, 2022 | 11:00 AM
The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Underserved, Agricultural, and Rural Business Development will hold a remote hearing titled: “The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s Benefits for Small Businesses.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 via the Zoom platform (information to be provided).
The condition of America’s infrastructure has been declining for decades. The American Society of Civil Engineers has long said that trillions are needed for repairs and improvements to U.S. infrastructure. On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law) into law, making a historic investment of $550 billion in new funds for large infrastructure projects, supply chains, broadband, and drinking water. This hearing will explore the benefits of this law for small businesses. Members will hear from small firms and experts about all the ways small firms can utilize the funds available to grow their businesses and obtain lasting success.
