Is Your Small Business Ready for New Contracting Opportunities?

The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) will provide many opportunities for contractors and suppliers. According to the White House, the IIJA will play an important role in rebuilding and improving roads, bridges, rails, ports and airports, expanding access to clean drinking water and high-speed internet, tackling the climate crisis, and more. While the impact of the new infrastructure funding will not be felt immediately, now is the time for small businesses to ensure that their operations are ready for future opportunities.
