George Mason University’s Mercatus Center has compiled data on first quarter ARRA stimulus spending.
For our 4th Congressional district, the summary shows $86.4 million spent in ARRA funds for the first fiscal quarter of this year. The figure is well below the average dollars awarded per district of $519 million spent per district nationwide.
The data also shows 182 jobs and 111 grants and contracts for our 4th district, compared with a national average of 159 contracts.
The information is here.
