Now that you have some background on Recovery and Recovery.gov, what’s next? Where can you go from here?
A good place to start is right in your own backyard. Take a look at your state’s summary page
to find out the total dollar amount for all the Recovery contract, grant, and loan awards. You’ll also find job numbers, the cities where most of the money went, and the top recipients.
To dive deeper, input your zip code
to get the details on that road project that you see every morning on the way to work. Or the status of the new regional library building. Or how much went to your school district.
Who are the Recipients?
All across the site, you’ll see reference after reference to the “recipients” of Recovery money. Find out who the recipients are
and how Recovery.gov collects their information. You can also find out how they’ve gotten Recovery funding
If you want to know if a company in your state received Recovery funding, go to the Recipient Search tool
, input the name, click go, and see all the details about the company in one place, including all the other entities that received connecting awards.
Report Fraud, Waste, and Abuse
It is possible that fraudsters will try to misuse or waste Recovery funds. If you suspect fraud has occurred on a Recovery project, we hope you will submit a Complaint form to the Board
. Allegations the Board thinks require further investigation are sent to the appropriate Inspector General. For a personal tour of the Operations Center where the Board follows the recipients of Recovery funds, watch the Who’s Tracking Recovery Dollars video
