ARRA Stimulus Funding
Welcome to the Mississippi Department of Education’s Web page dedicated to information on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also commonly referred to as the ARRA or the stimulus package. ARRA – a federal bill that was signed into law on February 17, 2009 – provides new, one-time funding through three main streams: the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund, Title I Programs and Programs under the Individuals with Disabilities Act of 1965.
The information on this site is designed to help education officials, school leaders, and others who may have questions about ARRA, and how leaders plan to utilize those funds in Mississippi. This site will be updated as the Mississippi Department of Education receives more information.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Section 1512, mandated that recipients of ARRA contract, grant, and loan awards report quarterly on the status of those awards. However, the January 17th enactment of the Federal Government’s Fiscal Year ’14 Omnibus Spending Bill repealed Section 1512 reporting as of February 1, 2014, making Quarter 4, 2013 the last time recipients will report on the status of their awards.
