FEDERAL STIMULUS PACKAGE UPDATES
The League’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Web page can be accessed at www.tml.org, by clicking on “Federal Stimulus Information.” In the past week, the following information on the page has been updated:
- Administration – The National League of Cities (NLC) has provided: (1) a letter from Vice President Biden to NLC President Kathleen Novak; and (2) the White House Memorandum to Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies, which addresses responsible spending of ARRA funds. Both are available on the TML Web page. In addition, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison’s office has prepared a summary of many of the ARRA programs, and a link to that document is available on the TML Web Page.
- Other – The U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Agency is accepting applications and grant proposals for stimulus projects as well as disaster rebuilding from the hurricanes, and a link to that information is available on the TML Web Page under “Other.”
League staff will continue to monitor the implementation of the ARRA.
