JEFFERSON COUNTY ARRA FUNDING AND PROJECTS

 


 

Based on the latest information available to the Governor’s Office. This report is not comprehensive because new Recovery Act awards are announced frequently. This does not include funds - including income tax cuts, increased COBRA benefits, increased funds to cover Medicaid services and others - that cannot be broken down by county.

The funds are distributed to a wide range of groups in the county and do not necessarily touch county government.
