American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) contains $787 billion in new federal spending and tax cuts, including approximately $100 billion for education funding, college grants, and tuition tax credits. According to U.S. education Secretary Arne Duncan, this funding will lay the foundation for a generation of education reform and help save jobs at risk of state and local budget cuts.
The New York State Board of Regents and the State Education Department are committed to ensuring that ARRA dollars allocated to education reach eligible recipients as quickly as possible to support critical projects and prevent job loss. This website provides the latest news and information on ARRA and state funding for education. Check the site often; updates will be posted as soon as they become available.
All ARRA Stabilization fund recipients are expected to comply with a set of assurances concerning the use of State Fiscal Stabilization Funds.
