Senator David Brock Smith Appointed to the Oregon Infrastructure Finance Authority Board

SALEM – The IFA Board is the policy and advisory body to the Infrastructure Finance Authority within Business Oregon. There is only one Senator allowed to serve on the Board and the term is four years.

“I am honored for the opportunity to serve on Oregon’s IFA Board and appreciate Senate President Wagner for his confidence in my knowledge and ability to help manage the work of the Infrastructure Finance Authority, their critical infrastructure projects and the resources that fund them,” said Senator David Brock Smith.

The IFA Board advises on development and implementation of state policies related to infrastructure needs and is tasked with oversight of many of Business Oregon's infrastructure financing programs, including the approval of funding for specific projects. The IFA Board is also responsible for oversight of the Federal Community Development Block Grant funding program. 

“There are infrastructure needs throughout our communities and across the state. The Infrastructure Finance Authority Board has a vital role working with public and private sectors to direct policy and programs for infrastructure needs and their associated funding. I appreciate the opportunity to serve in this important position and look forward to this work for our residents and the people of Oregon,” said Senator David Brock Smith.
