American Recovery & Reinvestment Act
The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory anticipates close to $180 million from the recent American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Already this infusion of ARRA funds has allowed us to preserve and create new jobs, move forward with critical environmental remediation activities, and continue to invest in technologies that will advance science, improve transportation, and better protect the environment in the long term. These investments will allow Argonne to realize the tremendous potential of scientific R&D to help drive the economy — in the region, state, and the nation -- and provide a green energy future for years to come.
Argonne is using ARRA funds to hire dozens of new employees and upgrade our infrastructure through a series of shovel-ready projects. Here you can see Argonne's role in the nation's clean energy economy by promoting local economic development, creating new jobs, and providing global scientific and engineering leadership.
