Thank you to our Member Company Nixon Peabody LLP for hosting this event at their facility.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (signed into law February 17, 2009) appropriates an unprecedented level of federal funding aimed at preserving and creating jobs, investing in transportation, environmental protection and other infrastructure, spurring technological advances, and stabilizing state and local government budgets. The statute requires that spending and activity commence as quickly as possible in an effort to jump-start economic recovery.
This EBC Forum will focus on how the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is allocating and distributing the federal stimulus funds with special emphases on those activities most relevant to EBC members:
- Energy – renewable energy, efficiency, clean tech, smart grid)
- Environment – Brownfields remediation, national diesel, reduction, SRFs
- Transportation – Roads, bridges, railways, electric vehicles
- Housing – Energy efficiency and construction of low-income housing
The Forum will be the single most influential forum for EBC members concerned with how the stimulus program will impact the economic crisis and their businesses. This first-of-its-kind forum presents key state and federal officials who will help you understand:
- Where the fast moving stimulus funds are to be spent
- How the funds will move desperately needed projects forward
- How to maximize access to those funding sources
