Federal Policy Priorities
2023 Federal Priorities for Planning and Communities
After recent landmark legislation in infrastructure, housing, and climate, APA's 2023 Federal Priorities offer an opportunity for planners to push for new tools, funding, and program reforms that support our communities and can help us plan for a stronger future.
From the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to the Inflation Reduction Act, planners have been promised historic federal investment to advance their work at the local and regional levels. Now, Congress and the Administration must act to make that promise a reality.
Strong federal action — including effective regulation and additional legislative advances — can ensure that investments in climate action, infrastructure, and zoning reform drive planning outcomes that make our communities and our country more prosperous, equitable, and resilient.
