Recipients of federal funds under the Recovery Act, including direct federal contracts, grants and loans, are required by Section 1512 of the Act to report quarterly on how they used the money.
The first quarterly reports reflect data for the period Feb. 17 – Sept. 30, 2009, including funds received by recipients for the period, funds expended, project descriptions and locations, and jobs created or saved.
Reports for the first reporting period were collected by the federal government through FederalReporting.gov, a Web site created specifically to collect the data. The state of Tennessee submitted 310 reports for funds awarded to or through state agencies.
Additional reports were filed for funds that do not flow through state government by the recipients of those funds. Organizations, such as local governments and not-for profit agencies, that received funds directly from the federal government are responsible for their own reporting.
The data for the first reporting period was published on Recovery.gov on Oct. 30, 2009. This includes data reported by the state of Tennessee and data reported by other organizations located within the state that received federal funds directly. The next reporting period begins Jan. 1, 2010, for funds received through Dec. 31, 2009.
