Regional Infrastructure Accelerator Demonstration Program


The Build America Bureau is designating and funding Regional Infrastructure Accelerators (RIA) that serve defined geographic areas and act as a resource to eligible project sponsors to speed development of Bureau-eligible projects. The goal is to finance and deliver more projects while demonstrating the effectiveness of RIAs in providing technical resources, planning, financing, and development support. In addition, direct financing is available through the Bureau loan programs and innovative funding, financing, and project delivery techniques. The Bureau last issued a Notice of Funding Opportunity in January for FY 2021 funded projects that will be announced this summer. The FY22 appropriations provided $12 million for an additional NOFO to be released later this year.
