WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. John Barrow (D-Savannah) released a guidebook detailing potential funding opportunities for local officials, community leaders, non-profit organizations, first responders, school districts, small businesses, and individuals from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for 12th District.
“I’m hoping folks in our community will use this guidebook as a resource as they seek Recovery Act funds,” said Barrow. “This money can do great things for communities, especially when it comes to getting folks back to work. But they need to know where the money is coming from, and where it’s going, to make the best use of it — and the sooner the better.”
Barrow’s Recovery Act Guidebook can be found online at www.barrow.house.gov.
The Obama administration is releasing Recovery Act funding announcements on an ongoing basis. To get the most up-to-date information, 12th District residents should consult www.recovery.gov, a Web site that details where federal dollars will be spent and announces funding opportunities.
The state of Georgia has set up www.stimulus.georgia.gov so that Georgia citizens can understand where the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 dollars are allocated and how the funds are utilized to benefit the state.
Any questions about the Recovery Act, or money that’s coming to the 12th District, should be directed to Barrow’s recovery coordinators: Brandon Webb at (202) 225-2823, or Lynthia Ross at (706) 722-4494.
