In this webinar, the Council hosted Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy, Christopher Coes and Department of Transportation (DOT) officials responsible for community outreach for a conversation about how foundations can collaborate with community partners to support the implementation of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed in November 2021. The cross-government investment can achieve unprecedented outcomes to ensure racial equity, thriving communities, worker empowerment, and climate change reforms but partnerships between government, philanthropy and industry will be critical. This webinar features best practices, and insights with federal officials to aid their efforts to address historic gaps in public transportation policy and engagement of underserved communities.
