Strickland announces Web site as state's virtual headquarters for info on federal stimulus package
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland announced today the launch of www.recovery.ohio.gov, which will serve as the Ohio virtual headquarters for information regarding the infrastructure and other unbudgeted elements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – the federal stimulus package.
“This Web site is designed to ensure that all eligible entities seeking federal stimulus resources are provided with an opportunity to apply for funds, and that they are considered fairly and equally,” Strickland said. “While this represents the first step of a process that will be further defined when the stimulus bill is complete, we believe this will strengthen Ohio’s ability to act quickly when the resources become available.”
Interested entities are asked to submit expressions of interest through a brief form available on www.recovery.ohio.gov.
The form is not the application for stimulus resources, but the first step to identify the appropriate state agency that will facilitate the next steps in the application and review process.
The Web site will provide information updates on the stimulus process and outline the specific guidelines for submitting proposals for consideration as the federal guidelines are identified.
