Colorado Economic Recovery and Accountability

Awards by Category

The Governor’s Economic Recovery Team conducted a detailed analysis of reports submitted to the federal government by more than 2,000 Colorado recipients of grants, contracts and loans to comply with Section 1512 of the Recovery Act. The team compiled reports based on this data near the peak of Recovery Act spending in September 30, 2011. This data serves to help the public understand how Recovery Act funds have been used. The pie chart below shows the types of recipients receiving grants, contracts and loans. This reflects how about one-third of all Recovery Act funds that have come to Colorado. The other two-thirds of funds are dedicated to tax cuts, tax credits and safety net benefits.
