FORVIS Can Help
Understanding the rules and regulations associated with spending IIJA funds to improve your community goes beyond simply applying Uniform Guidance 2 C.F.R. 200. Federal agencies awarding the funds will have their own program-specific guidance that organizations should follow along with any applicable state guidance. Pre-planning and designing policies to adhere to the funding requirements can help your organization avoid the pitfalls that can impact infrastructure spending.
