Website tracks ARRA funding
Since February 2009 Yale faculty have received more than 280 research awards with a value of $121 million through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The act’s goal is to reinvigorate the economy and stimulate long-term growth through increased investments in infrastructure, education, the environment, and scientific research.
The university in January debuted a website designed to provide information about grants received through ARRA. The website, opa.yale.edu/sp/arra1/, includes vignettes of faculty research, background information on the competitive process used to select applications, and such key statistics as the number of jobs created or retained through ARRA-funded projects. The site also links to a site developed by the Association of American Universities, the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities, and the Science Coalition. That site demonstrates the impact of ARRA funding at research universities across the country.
