American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) provided more than $98 billion for existing and new education-related grant programs, most of which ended at the close of fiscal year (FY) 2011. The law also gave the OIG an increased role in overseeing all Recovery Act funds, providing the OIG with $14 million through FY 2012 to monitor Recovery Act funds distributed by ED. A second education stimulus, the Education Jobs Fund, which was enacted in 2010 and provided another $10 billion to help local educational agencies hire, retain, or rehire employees who provided school-level educational and related services, ended at the close of FY 2012. In 2011, OIG Inspector General Kathleen Tighe was appointed by President Obama to serve as the Chair of the Recovery Board, leadership she provided and duties she carried out while continuing to serve as the Inspector General of ED through the Recovery Board sunset at the close of FY 2015. Below are those reports issued by the OIG on the Recovery Act. If you have any questions or for additional information on ED OIG Recovery Act activities, please contact the OIG Public Affairs Office.
