ARRA Funding in North Dakota

About $520 million have been awarded to North Dakota through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to be distributed through state agencies. Most of the funding will be channeled through three agencies: the Department of Public Instruction, the Department of Human Services, and the Department of Transportation.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2013, 51.06 North Dakota jobs were funded with these ARRA funds.

North Dakota ARRA Funding Breakdown
Public School Districts Non-profit Organizations Private Sector State Agencies
32.46 0.40 4.10 14.10

In many cases, particularly with state agencies and public school districts, these were not new positions; rather they existed prior to ARRA. When the ARRA funding expires, the positions will revert to their original funding sources. If additional funding is not available, the positions will be eliminated.

When the Award Amount field is blank, an award has not been received or these particular programs are not funded through an award process.
