PA Gov. Rendell: Stimulus providing short- and long-term benefit
In addition, the state’s Office of Accountability produced the commonwealth’s quarterly informational report, called the “Citizens’ Update,” on the progress and impact of the Recovery Act investments. The Update provides a user-friendly look at the state’s stimulus activities and provides information beyond the required quarterly federal reports. It can be read online at www.Recovery.Pa.Gov.
In total, Pennsylvania is on track to receive more than $31 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Individual and business federal tax credits and benefits comprise about $11 billion of that total. The $16.6 billion flowing through state government agencies will build highways and bridges, help workers, improve the environment, support communities, develop alternative energy, and house residents.
More than $3.4 billion will be awarded directly from the federal government to entities across the state, including local governments, transit agencies, businesses, non-profit organizations and universities, for a variety of projects and programs.
