August 10th, 2010

Over the last 17 months, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has played a vital role in the stabilization of families and local communities moving through the recession in Mississippi. From projects supporting roads and bridges to keeping teachers in the classroom, ARRA has preserved important services and jobs across the state. Since the inception of ARRA, over $2.4 billion has been awarded and over $1 billion has been expended. In the second quarter of this year alone, 8,829 jobs have been reported as being preserved by ARRA recipients.
