About the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
On Feb. 13, 2009, Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 at the urging of President Obama, who signed it into law four days later. A direct response to the economic crisis, the Recovery Act has three immediate goals:
- Create new jobs and save existing ones
- Spur economic activity and invest in long-term growth
- Foster unprecedented levels of accountability and transparency in government spending
The Recovery Act will provide $275 billion in federal grants, contracts and loans, much of that going to state and local governments and is still being awarded. The Kansas City Recovery portal is your resource for seeing how ARRA funds are being put to work in our community.
