Stimulus Speed Chart

Note: This application is no longer updated.

This chart tracks how fast federal agencies are getting stimulus money out the door. The lines trace what portion of an agency’s total appropriation under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has been spent or is in process. (See buttons to select a category.) The figures do not include stimulus tax cuts, which aren’t traceable this way. Read the related article, A Stimulus Birthday Present: Our Spending Speed Chart.
