The Obama Administration launched an accountablility website to be accessed by the American people and used to track where and how the money is spent that was allocated in the massive stimulus bill signed on Monday.
The website, at www.recovery.gov, lets US taxpayers and the media see where the money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going. There will be more features added to the website in the coming days and months, including a few different ways to search for information.
“The money is being distributed by Federal agencies, and soon you’ll be able to see where it’s going — to which states, to which congressional districts, even to which Federal contractors,” says the White House website. “As soon as we are able to, we’ll display that information visually in maps, charts, and graphics.
Kiplinger.com has an interactive map online with a current breakdown of what transportation projects are likely to be funded in each of the 50 states, and rough estimates for job creation numbers.
