The Federal Government is hosting an online conversation starting Monday, April 27th to hear from the public, consumers, grantees and vendors about how technology can and should be used to make recovery efforts transparent.
“What ideas, tools, and approaches can make Recovery.gov a place where all citizens can transparently monitor the expenditure and use of recovery funds?”
We’re planning to log-on as we believe online mapping is essential to making the public aware of where, how and for what purpose stimulus dollars are being spent in our states, cities and neighborhoods — next door or down the street.
If you are interested in joining the conversation, check out the Recovery website at www.recovery.gov for more information as it becomes available.
We’re taking a stab at mapping the stimulus transportation investments in the MidAtlantic states and will have something up on PolicyMap for you to check out in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
