American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law economic stimulus legislation known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Metro is currently seeking to secure and program funding made available through ARRA to invest in local transportation projects that are aimed at increasing mobility and reducing traffic in LA County.
Funding that becomes available will be used to accelerate existing projects, fund additional projects, create jobs and stimulate the local economy. As more information becomes available, this page will be updated to provide an overview of what funding was secured and where it will be invested.
