You can look at types of projects federal stimulus funded in your area and associated jobs. I'm interested in how this very useful info could help your research, fundraising and advocacy.

Friends and Colleagues:
As you may be aware, the ninth round of stimulus data, as mandated under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), was made available to the public on October 30, 2011.
The federal government, via Recovery.gov, offers a snapshot of all the contracts, grants and loans to prime and sub-recipients across the country, such as states, municipalities, non-profit organizations, businesses, hospitals, and universities.
Here in New York City, we continue to update our Stimulus Tracker website as our City continues to benefit from ARRA funds. Our goal is enhance transparency, share key statistics, and engage our citizens, so that you can see our progress with these grants. I have attached the latest edition of our Stimulus Tracker E-Newsletter, which was circulated earlier this week. You can sign up to receive these “Stimulus Tracker Updates” on our website.
In September 2011, we also launched a new Tumblr site to help tell the story of ARRA in New York City. Follow us. There will be new posts for you to check out on a weekly basis.
Hope that you find this information useful. Please feel free to share with others who may be interested. The next quarterly reporting period for all ARRA recipients begins January 1, 2012.
Enjoy a happy Thanksgiving.
