The Recovery Act, signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009, includes measures to modernize our nation’s infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.
Implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)
Chesterfield County is committed to maximizing the impact of federal Recovery dollars and ensuring that funds are spent efficiently and appropriately and in accordance with the objectives of the ARRA. We have an internal vetting process for determining which ARRA funds to pursue and we are prepared to receive the greatest level of funding possible. We are constantly seeking and applying for new funding opportunities that reflect the County’s vision and goals.
