Website Allows Stimulus Oversight
March 11, 2009 - Officials and taxpayers from Central and East Central Indiana can recommend and follow Indiana’s federal stimulus projects online thanks to a new website, according to State Sen. Beverly Gard (R-Greenfield).
“There are many questions surrounding the who, what, when and where of using the federal stimulus funding in Indiana,” Gard said. “This site is a fantastic resource to find answers and understand what will be done with the more than $4 billion that Indiana will receive.”
Invest.in.gov is the state-launched Web site providing Hoosiers with useful information on the recently passed federal stimulus package, including lists of state highway and bridge projects and information on water infrastructure improvements.
Gard said she encourages citizens to visit the competitive grants section of the site, located on the left-hand browsing section, and suggest potential infrastructure projects for their communities that may be eligible for funding.
Local projects are remaining under discussion, however, the Indiana Department of Transportation is already working on 55 state projects funded through federal stimulus dollars.
Gard said the site will soon include a new section to help Hoosiers understand formulas used when determining how many federal dollars Indiana will receive for education and road project funding.
“In the meantime, residents may find it helpful to visit the frequently asked questions area or click on one of the multiple links the site offers for more information,” Gard said.
