Barrow Releases Recovery Act Guidebook

Congressman John Barrow (Ga.-12) today released a guidebook detailing potential funding opportunities for local officials, community leaders, non-profit organizations, first responders, school districts, small businesses, and individuals from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for 12th District.

"I'm hoping folks in our community will use this guidebook as a resource as they seek Recovery Act funds," said Barrow. "This money can do great things for communities, especially when it comes to getting folks back to work. But they need to know where the money is coming from, and where it's going, to make the best use of it - and the sooner the better."

Congressman Barrow's Recovery Act Guidebook can be found here.

The Obama Administration is releasing Recovery Act funding announcements on an ongoing basis. To get the most up-to-date information, 12th District residents should consult www.recovery.gov, a website that details where federal dollars will be spent and announces funding opportunities.

The State of Georgia has set up www.stimulus.georgia.gov so that Georgia citizens can understand where the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 dollars are allocated and how the funds are utilized to benefit the state.
