Region 5 Information Related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009


This Web site will provide information about environmental projects administered by EPA in Region 5 (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and 35 Tribes) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. We will provide information as it becomes available.

The Recovery Act provides funding for significant projects that will help clean our environment, and provide better environmental and public health protection to our citizens. EPA's portion of the plan will create green jobs that will also help clean contaminated land, produce cleaner drinking water and air quality, spur environmentally-conscious urban and rural re-development and reduce greenhouse gases.

Funding from the Recovery Act includes projects to clean up old abandoned properties called Brownfields, speed clean up work at Superfund sites, retrofit aging school buses with advanced equipment to reduce diesel emissions, assess and clean up underground storage tank leaks and improve water quality infrastructure.

OMB Webinars on Reporting Requirements

OMB issued guidance in June for federal agencies and recipients of Recovery Act funding on reporting requirements. To ensure the public and recipients receive as much information as possible on the reporting aspects of the Act, OMB held a series of webinars in late July.

Listen to audio files and view PDF presentation materials for these informative webinars.
