Recovery Board Rebrands Recovery.gov
The Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board (the Board) was created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to provide oversight and transparency of all ARRA awards. In 2012, under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012, the Board’s authority was expanded to include oversight of all federal funding. Under the Disaster Appropriations Act of 2013, the Board was mandated by Congress to use its resources to track Hurricane Sandy funding. To provide transparency of all the Board’s activities, and comply with President Obama’s Open Government Initiative, Recovery.gov has been rebranded as the Board’s official website.
You will now find information about the Board’s oversight activities, members, and reports; data on Hurricane Sandy relief; data on ARRA awards and recipients; information on the Government Accountability and Transparency Board; and the archived data on the Education Jobs Fund all in one place.
You can now navigate to each section directly from the Recovery.gov home page, or by using the global navigation at the top of every page. A new Sandy logo, home page, and more information on Hurricane Sandy spending has been added and will be expanded as data is available. As ARRA recipients continue to report quarterly on their awards, data will be updated, and stories about ARRA projects will be featured.
