Want your piece of the stimulus pie?


A portion of a great article in the NAWIC Image by Robin Fulton Meyer, President of NAWIC (The National Association of Women in Construction).

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was signed into law on February 17, 2009.  The stimulus bill, almost a year and a half old, is as controversial now as it was when it was first passed.  The Annual report to the President on Progress Implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, released by the White House in February 2010, defends the stimulus against the criticism that it has failed to produce jobs and sheds light on where the $787 billion dollars is now…

…Some of the first infrastructure projects are underway, include adding 35 acres of solar arrays to the Federal Center in Denver, Co.; building the Wounded Warrior complex at Fort Bliss, Texas; projects to bring broadband access to rural communities in Kansas and New York; and building 800 miles of high speed rail in California.  Want to know what is going on in your area or try to get a piece of the stimulus pie?  Go to www.recovery.gov.

My Gainesville distributor supplied doors for two of the jobs that I found on the interactive map.  One project was a medical center in my very small town, the other a computer training center in Gainesville. Use this useful tool and help in stimulating the economy.
