American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. ARRA represents a concerted effort to speed economic recovery while also addressing a variety of critical issues.
As outlined in the Act itself, the purposes of the Act are to:
Preserve and create jobs and promote economic recovery.
Assist those most impacted by the recession.
Provide investments needed to increase economic efficiency by spurring technological advances in science and health.
Invest in transportation, environmental protection, and other infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits.
Stabilize State and local government budgets, in order to minimize and avoid reductions in essential services and counterproductive state and local tax increases.
Read the Act.
