Great Lakes East Comprehensive Center

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Resources

Great Lakes East is working to provide states with relevant and timely information in response to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which was signed into law on February 17, 2009, by President Barack Obama. This page is designed to bring new information and resources regarding ARRA, the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF), Race to the Top, state efforts, and other relevant issues.  Additional information can also be found through the Learning Point Associates Education Recovery and Reinvestment Center.

New Resources!

Summaries of Title I School Improvement Grants, State Fiscal Stabilization Fund Phase II, and State Longitudinal Data Systems Draft Materials
The U.S. Department of Education released the Title I School Improvement Grants, State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (Phase II), and State Longitudinal Data Systems draft materials for comment. Great Lakes West and Great Lakes East Centers have developed short, concise summaries of these materials. These summaries are not intended to replace the official regulations released by the U.S. Department of Education and are provided only as supplemental resources.
