Find, rate local stimulus projects (11-30-09)
Citizens around the country are helping ensure that ARRA funds are wisely spent at the website Stimulus Watch. Individuals are encouraged to find, discuss, and rate local stimulus projects. Stimulus projects can be searched by location, federal agency, and cost, as well as by user rating for “most” and “least satisfied.” In Illinois, visitors to the site have voted on whether or not they are satisfied with a range of projects, which cost a total of $6.4 billion. Click here to see how satisfied residents are with ARRA contracts, grants, and loans in the state. Projects are ranked based on the vote ratio they’ve received (10 votes in favor and 15 against results in a vote ratio of -5).
