The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act establishes guidelines that will make the distribution of federal dollars by states subject to unprecedented levels of transparency and accountability. Periodic reports on the status of federal dollars must be submitted to federal agencies, Congress, and recovery.gov. This reporting will also include announcements for grant competitions, allocations of formula grants, and awards of competitive grants.
The Governor is required to report the following quarterly:
- How funds will be used
- Whether funds were used correctly
- Jobs created/sustained by the funds
- Non-federal funding sources used to complete projects
