Where's the Money Going?

It's been about six months since the Recovery Act / Stimulus Bill passed and the money is starting to trickle down to local communities. ProPublica Recovery Tracker is a website keeping an eye on all the dollars and where they are being spent. You can view by state and then drill down to individual parishes to see exactly where funds are being allocated. For instance, Lafayette Parish received a little more than $33.7 million dollars and on that site you can see that lots of that is going toward various Pell Grants and Housing Authorities. Click here to check out the Lafayette Parish page of the ProPublica website.
