AMERICAN RECOVERY & REINVESTMENT ACT (ARRA)

On February 13, 2009, Congress passed the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) at the urging of President Barack Obama. The Act was signed into law four days later. A direct result of the economic crisis, the Recovery Act has three immediate goals:

 

  • Create new jobs and save existing ones

  • Spur economic activity and invest in long-term growth; and

  • Foster unprecedented levels of accountability and transparency in government spending

 

The EOC of Nassau County, Inc. has worked prudently to align its programmatic initiatives with the intent of President Obama’s ARRA legislation and in support of the six Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) National Performance Indicators. “The ARRA Influence…A Powerful Investment”, which is available for download, highlights the impact this funding has made in the lives of Nassau County residents through job creation and retention, economic activity and expanded and new programming initiatives implemented by the EOC of Nassau County, Inc.
