website shows how recovery funding is at work in Minneapolis

The City of Minneapolis has launched www.minneapolisrecovery.us , a website where the public can learn how the City is putting federal recovery funds to work to get our economy moving. As Minneapolis begins to receive funding from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), it is making transparency a top priority to ensure that residents and others have easy access to information on how the City is pursing and spending recovery funds.

The Minneapolis Economic Recovery site has an up-to-date list of recovery grants that the City has either received or that are in the application pipeline. It includes economic recovery resources for residents and businesses, and there’s also an opportunity for you to submit your ideas for making the most of the federal recovery funding.

Minneapolis leaders have developed the Minneapolis Economic Recovery Strategy, which is designed to maximize the impact of federal economic recovery investments in our community. The plan will help ensure that those investments translate into a more competitive future for the people of Minneapolis and the entire region. Over the next several months, Minneapolis will continue to apply for federal recovery funding for a variety of critical projects and initiatives – from public safety and infrastructure to technology and building a green economy, all with a focus on creating and retaining jobs.
