Dear Friends,

On February 17, 2010 President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law. This law will create or save 3.5 million jobs, immediately cut taxes for 95 percent of workers, and begin an unprecedented transformation of our economy, making us more globally competitive and energy independent for the 21st century.

My office has assembled this guide as a resource for you to find out what federal programs will receive funding from this historic package. Inside you will find funding opportunities for individuals, businesses, and communities. Some funding will be directly allocated to the state or local government or a particular agency and other funding will be available in the form of grants through a federal agency or a state agency.

As the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a complex document the information provided in this guide should be used as a basic idea of what is entailed in this act. Information provided in this guide at the time of printing is accurate to the best of our knowledge. Funding numbers for some departments and programs are estimates as exact numbers were not available at the time of publication. Please continue to check the federal and state websites as indicated for updated information each week as this process rolls out.

I hope you will find this information helpful. If you have any questions please contact my office at 202-225-4431 or 303-844-4988 or email questions to degette@mail.house.govThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Sincerely,

Diana DeGette
Member of Congress
