How ARRA Funds are Located on the Map
The ARRA mapping feature is based on data from 1512 reports submitted by State Agencies (Prime Recipients) as required by Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This map does not include data from local governments, private firms, and individuals receiving ARRA funds directly from Federal Agencies.
The goal of the map is to identify the use of ARRA funds at the county level. How is this accomplished?
For awards with sub-recipients, Funds distributed to sub-recipients are assigned to the county in which the sub-recipient is located. Funds that are retained by the Prime Recipient (State Agency) are assigned to the county in which the Prime Recipient is located.
For awards with no sub-recipients, the total funds awarded to the Prime Recipient (State Agency) are assigned to the county in which the Prime Recipient is located.
There are limitations to the completeness and accuracy of the map.
Several ARRA programs, such as unemployment, Medicaid, and Tax Credit Assistance Program, are not required to submit 1512 reports, and, therefore, are not included in the map.
Many local projects are located across multiple counties. In those cases, a primary county is chosen and data assigned to the primary county.
While a prime recipient or sub-recipient may be located in one county, the actual work may be done in a different county. The map will show the location of the recipient, not the work.
Jobs data is reported at the prime level, not the sub-recipient level. Therefore, jobs data cannot be shown on the map.
Data for sub-recipients that are located out of state are assigned to the county in which the Prime Recipient is located.
Please be patient as the map loads
Many of the stimulus funds being awarded to state agencies will be used for specific projects within a county, school district, or local community.
