FEDERAL STIMULUS PACKAGE UPDATES
The Leagues 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 Hutchisons 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.
