Serving Idaho's Children, Youth and Young Adults: Tracking ARRA Spending in Idaho
Idaho KIDS COUNT releases the first monthly report which updates Idaho's use of stimulus funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Key interest points include:
- Despite experiencing dramatic increases in unemployment, Idaho has yet to be awarded any funds through either TANF Emergency Contingency Fund or the TANF supplemental Grant Extension
- $9.4 million in the Governor's Discretionary portion of ARRA funds for state fiscal relief remain unspent and potentially unobligated.
- Idaho appears to be slow in spending (or in the reporting on its spending of) ARRA funds awarded to LEA and School Improvement grants
- Idaho has been awarded more ARRA funding than originally anticipated for Unemployment Insurance, School Lunch Equipment Assistance grants, and McKinney-Vento for the education of children experiencing homelessness.
