Economic Recovery Update newsletter transition survey (6-10-10)
Since October 2009, CMAP along with the Regional ARRA Coordinating Council (RACC) has been sending bi-weekly newsletters with updates and analyses of select American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) programs, with a focus on region-wide and suburban initiatives. These newsletters, which are also be posted on CMAP's Recovery blog, are meant to provide useful information on funding announcements, collaboration efforts, and tracking of where and how stimulus funds are being spent in the region. Council members who are experts on energy, weatherization, job training, and housing programs (the RACC focus areas), as well as the Governor's office, contribute to these updates, providing unique and timely information. In addition, the updates cover important developments and news on stimulus spending in other areas, such as Transportation, health care, education, and activity at the state level.
CMAP plans to transition this bi-weekly Recovery Act newsletter to a monthly one with an expanded scope. The new version of the newsletter will include topics on policies and programs related to the region's GO TO 2040 plan. Information on the Recovery Act will continue to be included, as well as additional program and policy news and funding opportunities that relate to the four themes of theGO TO 2040 plan: Livable Communities, Regional Mobility, Human Capital, and Efficient Governance. The Recovery blog will also transition to include policy news that relate to the GO TO 2040 plan.
