PWB Upcoming 2023 Funding Cycle – What to Know, How to Prepare

The Washington State Public Works Board (PWB) is an infrastructure funder, and we’re opening for business for the 2023-2025 biennium! The PWB acts to open a cycle at its May 5, 2023 meeting.

If you are an infrastructure manager for roads and bridges, domestic water, wastewater, stormwater, or solid waste, recycling and organics, it’s time to get ready for a funding cycle!

How to prepare for the upcoming funding cycle:

Local Governments:

Revisit your capital improvement plan or capital facilities plan to ensure it is current and verify the adoption date (within the last 5 years).

Special Purpose Districts:
Ensure that your systems plan is current, complete, and approved within the last 5 years.
