American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
Purchase with Your Economic Stimulus Funds
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), passed in February 2009, provides billions of dollars to fund projects and incentives to assist the nation's economic recovery plan. Stimulus Funds were allocated to support infrastructure projects, renewable energy incentives and projects, educational opportunities, affordable healthcare and tax relief.
Take advantage of the many opportunities offered in the economic stimulus package by leveraging our strong inventory position and experience with processing ARRA Stimulus orders. To help you comply and select appropriate items for ARRA orders, we display Country of Origin (COO) for our products.
