Becker Helps Secure $69 Million For the Virginia Port Authority

Congratulations to the Virginia Port Authority (VPA), a Becker federal client and one of the fastest growing ports in the United States, on securing a New Start and $69.3 million in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding. Our Becker federal team was proud to have assisted in this important effort to deepen and widen the Norfolk Harbor Channel to 55 feet.

The VPA has experienced significant growth for almost two decades and has made major investments in infrastructure/capacity with the expansion of primary cargo terminals, expanded capabilities of port facilities, and dredging. Moreover, this award builds on other recent Becker assisted awards, including the $21.3 million Port Infrastructure grant in FY 2020 and the $20.0 million Port Infrastructure grant for FY21.
