CARSON CITY – Governor Jim Gibbon’s announced today that the state has redesigned its website for reporting activities related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to allow greater transparency of the stimulus program in Nevada.
“We are committed to making information about Nevada’s use of stimulus funds readily available to our residents,” the Governor said. “During these tough economic times, it’s important that our citizens know we are utilizing stimulus in the most efficient way that will help our economy and create more jobs for Nevadans.”
The website features an interactive map that displays how state agencies use Recovery Act awards by geographic regions. The map, graphs and other detailed data are directly updated by state agencies through an innovative reporting system. The system enables agencies to directly report actual project expenditures to the public.
“The state’s recovery website http://www.nv.gov/Recovery/ offers improved navigation and will allow Nevadans to be even more informed about the receipt and use of Recovery Act funding awarded to state agencies,” Harvey said. “Along with Governor Gibbons, my office is committed to ensuring that the public is regularly informed about the use of these funds.”
The purpose of this website is to list and describe all Recovery Act funding that is allocated to Nevada, particularly the award and expenditures of funds sent directly to Nevada state government.
The website is designed to answer three major questions.
- Which state agencies have been awarded Recovery Act funding, and for what programs?
- How are state agencies using Recovery Act funds, and what is the benefit to the citizens of Nevada?
- Where are the projects located?
