Wyoming Infrastructure Matching Fund
In an effort to bring more federal funds from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) back to the State of Wyoming, the Wyoming Legislature has appropriated $75 million to the Governor’s Office in a State Infrastructure Matching Fund. These dollars are available, at the discretion of the Governor, to be used by the State of Wyoming or its political subdivisions for the purpose of qualifying for IIJA grants. The Legislature did also add the following conditions:
The State Infrastructure Matching Fund requires a match of state funds in the ratio of one dollar ($1.00) of appropriated general funds to not less than four dollars ($4.00) of federal funds. The Governor’s Office will accept applications until the funds are expended, encumbered, or until the end of the state fiscal cycle, which is June 30, 2024.
The State of Wyoming has established a State Infrastructure Matching Funds application (Link, make a copy) as well as guidelines regarding project eligibility and a protocol for funding approval (see attached). These are being managed by the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information (A&I).
