The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act contains many provisions stressing transparency in the use of funding. This website will provide you with information regarding the use of funds in Oregon.

 It is our intent to develop a local reporting system for our area to keep all citizens informed, which will be available on our website as well as the website of Community Services Consortium 

Other sources of information regarding these funds and state agencies can be found at:

Some of the ARRA funds have recently been made available in Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counties. These funds are dedicated to providing services to citizens in need of employment, education, and training. 

The Workforce Investment Board’s WorkSource Partners, Community Services
Consortium, the Oregon Employment Department, Department of Human Services, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Linn-Benton Community College, and Oregon Coast Community College, are currently developing plans to utilize these funds to provide services to job seekers, dislocated workers, and youth.   

It is our intent to update our local information every two weeks.  The reporting section below is currently under development. Through the Workforce Investment Board's WIA service provider, Community Services Consortium, we are ready to act now.

We plan to  invest the funds quickly and wisely; expand and augment current offerings; invest heavily in skills and post-secondary training; and be ready to report back to Congress and the public regarding the return on their investments (program performance, outcomes, etc.).
