Though it’s no longer possible to access the website for the Recovery Act some “big picture” data is available. For example, the overall cost of the program, originally projected to be $787 billion, ended up being closer to $831 billion. It’s hard to say what the overall impact of the program has been as politics creeps into efforts to objectively assess the program. Though it had many shortcomings it is probably safe to say that unemployment was lower in 2010 that would have been were it not for the Recovery Act. For some more detailed information about where money was spent and what opportunities still remain available you can learn more in our article about the [[domain_discuss:fbo.gov|Federal Business Opportunities]] website.

 +Was this act a success — and are there still grant awards to be made? The answer depends on your politics and your grasp of economics. In general there is some agreement that it helped, though many would argue it was too big or too small or perhaps did not last long enough. For those who wish to know where money went — and what might be left — your best bet is to go to the Federal Business Opportunities website and do a search by agency or location. You can also see some useful information if you look at the website of the National Institutes of Health … they list many awards from the ARRA. There are no award still open for applications.
