The state has created a new website to monitor how funds from the federal stimulus fund are spent.
The website, www.stimulusaccountability.ga.gov provides details on the state’s use of funds made available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to a news release from Gov. Sonny Perdue's office.
“The accountability website will allow all Georgians to hold their state government responsible for how we spend their tax dollars,” Perdue said. “I want to be able to point to concrete results when my grandchildren ask me how we spent stimulus money.”
Items available on the website include Perdue’s directives to state agency leaders given during a meeting last month and a direct link to each state agency is available from the site and agency contacts are provided who can answer questions regarding funding, timelines, the grant process and other issues.
