American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

Here’s what UF’s Office of Research had to say about The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA): “The Act dedicates billions of dollars to support science, engineering research and infrastructure, with more limited funding directed towards education, social sciences and the arts.” You can find that definition here: http://research.ufl.edu/research/arra.html. We visited
Recovery.gov the U.S government’s official site for Recovery Act data, and it was very helpful with tracking where the money was going. Both UF and FSU are listed on the site as recipients. After searching, we found some reports were not visible.  Some of the available reports had interesting numbers. FSU received a whopping total $63,835,258 in just one of the reports. The majority of those funds were awarded to it’s State Fiscal Stabilization Fund – Education Fund. The highest total we found in the  UF’s reports was $843,955, which was awarded to various research and engineering projects. See every report for FSU here http://www.recovery.gov/Transparency/RecoveryData/Pages/RecipientSearch.aspx?recipname=Florida%20State%20University and here for UF http://www.recovery.gov/Transparency/RecoveryData/Pages/RecipientSearch.aspx?recipname=University%20of%20Florida
