The West Virginia Infrastructure Hub is a coordinated approach by Governor Jim Justice’s Administration - working to identify best practices from across the nation for deploying funds and maximizing West Virginia’ Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) opportunities.The federal IIJA provides historic investment in United States infrastructure. While most of the formula or directed funding West Virginia receives is administered by federal and local entities, some state agencies will administer additional funds. For example, additional transportation formula funding will be administered by the West Virginia Department of Transportation.“We’re stronger when we all pull the rope together, especially when it comes to infrastructure,” Governor Jim Justice.
Roads and highways are the backbone
of our economy, allowing West Virginia motorists to travel 16 billion miles annually and moving a significant portion of the $124 billion worth of commodities shipped each year.
The Major Broadband Project Strategies MBPS program involves $20.8
million in grant funding a six massive broadband infrastructure
projects, investing over $1 billion in state and federal funds and bring
broadband to 200,000 new locations.
