RESOURCES: Interactive Stimulus Funds Map

Dispatch from SSC Intern Emilia Pramova

The federal government has poured an unprecedented amount of money into the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) during the last few months, also known as the stimulus program. Investments are being made in a diverse range of projects ranging from weatherization and renewable energy to building energy-efficiency retrofits.

But finding out where the recovery funds are going and bidding on projects can be quite an overwhelming and time-consuming endeavour. For this reason comes to the rescue with the launch of its new interactive Stimulus Funds map. The aim of this project is to make it easier for business owners and the interested public to track down where the funds are going.

Access the full-size version of the map, as well as the legend explaining what each of the categories are, by clicking here.
