Recovery.gov has recently provided two maps useful to entities interested in how funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) are being used, especially potential recipients. With the majority of ARRA funds yet to be spent, the following interactive maps are useful in documenting what types of contracts, loans and grants will be available as heavy spending gets underway over the next year:

  1. http://www.recovery.gov/?q=content/investments-state - This map tracks three dollar amounts: 1) what federal agencies have announced they are giving to a particular state; 2) what the agencies currently have made available for projects; and 3) the amount the agencies have paid out to a particular state.
  2. http://www.recovery.gov/?q=content/investment-award - This map tracks companies that have received ARRA funds, including general information about the project, the amount of money allocated for the proect, and its location.
