Maya Wiley, Executive Director of the Center for Social Inclusion, and Alan Jenkins, Executive Director of The Opportunity Agenda discussed the challenges facing New Orleans four years after Katrina and how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus bill or Recovery Act) may create opportunities to strengthen the city.
We are eager to share your stories, particularly those telling how Recovery Act funds have been used well or how decision makers in your city, town, county or state have missed this historic chance to sow seeds of opportunity. Please read the announcement below (also attached) for more information on how to share these stories.
In coming months, we will also be sharing more information about Recovery Act opportunities to ensure that all communities get their fair share of federal dollars.
We hope that you will be able to watch this morning. Please also feel free to send any questions, comments or concerns.
