Stimulus Funding Provides Increased Opportunities for University Research

On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA or the “stimulus” law), which contains an unparalleled amount of funding for research and development. ARRA provides $21.5 billion in funding, all of which has to be allocated and spent by September 2011.  To learn more about ARRA, see www.recovery.gov.  

In addition to the ARRA web site, most federal agencies have established a web page outlining how they plan to expend the funds in the weeks and months ahead. For more information, see the following agency recovery portal links:
