Education and NSF Guidance on Stimulus Funds

The Department of Education (ED) released today its much anticipated guidance to states on the state fiscal stabilization funds, which were created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  The set of documents published today on the stabilization funds includes:  1) a cover letter; 2) application for funds; and, 3) the actual guidance.  The complete set of documents is available on the ED ARRA website at the following URL:  http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/leg/recovery/index.html.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has also issued additional guidance on the use and disbursement of funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  The most recent set of documents from NSF is available at the following URL:  http://www.nsf.gov/recovery/.
