Governor Quinn Launches Illinois Recovery Website
Website will track stimulus projects' spending and job creation

CHICAGO - February 21, 2009. On Saturday Governor Pat Quinn launched Recovery.Illinois.gov, a website created to help ensure that Illinois takes full advantage of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act.
“Our recovery team is ready to carry out the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act here in Illinois,” said Governor Quinn.
The new website, Recovery.Illinois.gov, is the portal to Illinois’ implementation of the federal stimulus plan and will:
·        Keep track of projects, spending and job creation;
·        List state run programs receiving supplemental funding including unemployment benefits,  food                            
         stamps, vocational rehabilitation and other services;
·        Connect to agency sites where proposed project lists will be posted as they become available; and
·        Allow Illinoisans to suggest a project that is eligible for federal stimulus funds.
“We are moving as quickly as possible to get projects going so that we can get the people of Illinois back to work,” said Governor Quinn. “This website will help them learn about important programs and track our progress.”
