ARRA Certifications

Minnesota made every effort to be ready and poised to receive and spend this stimulus money quickly and to direct these funds to quality projects in a clear and transparent way. Three certifications (formal letters) are filed before ARRA funds could be made available:

 

Comprehensive 1511 highway infrastructure list

Comprehensive 1511 transit list

 


ARRA Reports

ARRA has required new levels of transparency and accountability from the states. The following reports are required for ARRA-funded projects to show that states are creating jobs and spending this money in a timely manner.

 

Highway Infrastructure

Monthly reports are to be submitted by the states to FHWA and will serve as input for the quarterly reports due to Congress.
