The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a $787 billion dollar Federal investment into the U.S. economy. The goals of the Recovery Act are to create jobs and stimulate the economy. These investments will be distributed through 130 separate funds. Each fund has unique set of rules that cover allocation, distribution, and implementation of the investments. All projects funded by ARRA will be tracked and monitored by the Federal Government.
Now that we’ve defined ARRA, let’s talk about funds specific to education.
