Billions of dollars in federal grants are flowing to states, cities and counties. The federal investments made in the last three years stabilized state and local governments from the economic uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic and are now offering them an opportunity to usher in unprecedented changes in state and local government operations and services. And we have only scratched the surface of the potential of these funds.

In this virtual forum, GovExec alongside a leading group of state and local leaders and industry officials will explore how state and local governments are leveraging federal funds to modernize technology, transportation and housing. Similarly, we will explore how state and local officials are working to balance the influx of federal funding and preventing the potential for fraud, waste and abuse.

Session Highlights:

The Great Tech Modernization Era | Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, many state and local governments were conducting business with legacy systems and struggling to demonstrate the importance of why additional funds were needed to modernize their systems. The nature of the pandemic required all government agencies to rapidly shift their operations. However, decades of underinvestment made those efforts initially different. Federal funds from the CARES Act and American Rescue Plan have helped many state and local governments finally make the investments they need to modernize their technology platforms. In this session, we will examine how states, cities and counties have modernized their technology infrastructure and invested in cloud computing — and how those communities plan to keep up with technology advancements in the future.

Everything Electric All At Once | One of the most significant investments of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is in electric vehicles and infrastructure. States and localities are working diligently to make plans to accommodate for the expected commercial electric vehicle explosion as well as identifying opportunities to electrify their vehicle fleets. In this discussion, we will feature one jurisdiction that is working collaboratively across levels of government and industry to be a leader in electric vehicle deployment.
