California Governor Showcases Infrastructure Investments

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new portal to highlight the state’s investments in infrastructure. The website documents how $180 billion in federal and state spending over the next 10 years benefits local communities, according to the California Construction and Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA).

“California is building more, faster, for all – and creating thousands of good-paying jobs in the process. This goes far beyond roads and bridges – this is about investing in our communities and our families, giving opportunity to hard-working Californians and ensuring we deliver on our world-leading climate goals,” said Newsom. 

A related Caltrans’ website tracks spending from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

Newsom also announced nearly $42 million for infrastructure improvements to parks in underserved communities, including skate parks, bike paths, playgrounds and more, CalCIMA noted.

The Governor’s GoBiz Office will be accepting applications for $164 million in California Competes Tax Credits until Jan. 22. This is for companies that are adding jobs and business in the state.
