Recovery BadgeOverview

The website supported the implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 at the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Approximately $160 billion was distributed to fund programs to improve and preserve health care, health information technology, children and community services, scientific research and facilities, and community health and prevention initiatives. The site launched in February, 2009, providing weekly and monthly reports to the nation about spending and accountability.
