Leveraging Private Capital

  • Dedicated Capital (in USD Billions)
  • Leveraging private capital creates a larger pool of funding for state and local governments to address infrastructure needs while driving economic growth and creating jobs.

  • When leveraged at a 60:40 debt-to-equity ratio, approximately $214 Bn in private capital could generate as much as $535 bn for infrastructure investment in the United States.

  • When used alongside federal dollars, private investment in infrastructure will greatly increase the amount of jobs that can be created. At the same time, existing public sector collective bargaining agreements are honored and union representation respected.

  • A Political Economy Research Institute study finds that for every $1 billion ininfrastructure investment, 18,000 direct and indirect jobs are created.
