Recovery & Reinvestment in the Region
The Great Lakes Region has obligated $842 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds, the second highest GSA regional outlay nationally and more than 15 percent of GSA's total Recovery Act budget of $5.5 billion.
Many of the region's Recovery investment has gone to energy saving projects, including overhaul of the Senator Paul Simon Federal Building solar roof (pictured at right) in Carbondale, Illinois.
Since Recovery began, the Region has spent $608 million in major modernization, leasing, and various small Recovery Act projects. The Region's Recovery Act outlays in Fiscal Year 2012 made up 14 percent of GSA's national outlays of $4.3 billion.
