2009-H4290 on Dec 11, 2009

Source: New Deal for a New Economy Act (H.R.4290)
  • There is established in the Department of Labor a New Economy Grant Program to provide grants for the creation of new jobs on specific public works projects carried out by State or local governments, and community-based public interest projects carried out by nonprofit organizations.
  • Specific Project Grants- From the amounts made available, set aside an amount for each State based on the population of and relative unemployment rate.
  • Entities eligible for a direct grant under this section include the following:
    - STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS that demonstrate an ability to promptly hire new employees for work on specific public works projects.
    - NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS- Community-based nonprofit organizations that demonstrate an ability to promptly hire and effectively manage new employees for work on specific projects.
  • Such projects must be ready to commence work no later than 2 months after receiving a grant, and new positions of employment on such projects must be for a period of not less than 6 months.


Rep. HARE: The unemployed don't want another benefits check. They want a job. H.R. 4290 would tackle this problem by creating and helping retain millions of jobs. It will reach that goal by investing $60 billion per year over 3 years in TARP money.

  • First, it would invest heavily in the creation of a new economy grant program.
  • Secondly, it would provide a direct line of funding to states and localities to help alleviate their financial woes.
  • Further, my bill would provide much-needed funding to our Nation's schools to protect our teachers and hire more to meet the needs of our children.
  • The final piece of this bill is a direct line of funding to our national forests and national parks to address some of their many high-needs projects that have been neglected for decades.
Wall Street got its bailout. It's time for Main Street to get theirs.
