Maps detailing the broad swath of activity planned across the United States in the second 100 days of the Recovery Act because of these ten commitments can be found on WhiteHouse.gov/Recovery, a new webpage launching today at 11:00AM EST that will allow the public to follow America’s Recovery story and hear from people across the country whose lives are being influenced by the Recovery Act. The new site provides snapshots of Recovery Act dollars at work, the latest Recovery news and opportunities for visitors to share their Recovery stories through comments, photos and videos, while Recovery.gov remains the go-to site for tracking Recovery Act spending.
President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law on February 17, 2009 as the nation faced the greatest economic crisis in half a century. The Recovery Act is the most sweeping economic package in the history of the country. In the just over 100 days since it was enacted, over 150,000 jobs have been created or saved by the Recovery Act and over $135 billion has been obligated to programs and projects that create jobs and lay the foundation for a secure economic future.
