Recovery Act of 2009


The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009.

Implementation of the Recovery Act

The Recovery Act includes $13.61 billion for projects and programs administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, nearly 75 percent of which was allocated to state and local recipients on February 25, 2009 only eight days after President Obama signed the Act into law.

Plans and Reports
Program plans for each of HUD's ARRA programs were submitted to OMB on May 15, 2009. They provide details on program objective and delivery schedules, approved activities, award types and amounts, measures, monitoring and evaluation plans, and potential barriers to effective implementation.
"Because of the steps we took, there are about two million Americans working right now who would otherwise be unemployed...The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act."
