Overview of NIAAA's Partcipation in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jump-start our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century.
The Recovery Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.
Implementing the Recovery Act at NIAAA
NIAAA is working diligently to take optimal advantage of this unprecedented opportunity. Our goal is to invest the ARRA funds to stimulate research advances in the alcohol field. NIAAA will continue to provide updated information regarding its Recovery Act efforts through the Department of Health Services (HHS) Recovery Web Site and Recovery.gov.
