Overview of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.

Implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act)

From the Department of Health and Human Services

Some $59 billion of Recovery Act funds are being invested in improving health and human services. A portion of these funds will apply directly to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).

These investments include:

  • Scientific Research & Facilities: Support for the construction of new research and educational facilities as well as groundbreaking scientific research that will improve the health of the nation.
     
  • Community Services and Early Childhood Care and Education Programs: Critical funding for programs such as community services infrastructure, meals for the elderly and persons with disabilities, Head Start, and subsidized child care to support children and families through the lifecycle.
     
  • Community Health: Support for the renovation and improvement of community health centers and other programs that serve patients in communities across the country.
     
  • Health Information Technology (IT): Funding to modernize the health care system by catalyzing the adoption of health information technology by 2014. Achieving this goal will reduce health costs for the federal government by over $12 billion over 10 years.
     

Over the upcoming months, we will provide more information on these programs and distribution of funding by HHS. In order to give small businesses and Americans across the country a chance to apply for recovery dollars to create and save jobs, some funding may not be distributed until this summer. New information on the allocation of funds will be posted on this Web site as it becomes available.
