Frequently Requested Information

The Department of Education's website provides ready access to a rich variety of information immediately-without a FOIA request. Items for which multiple FOIA requests have been (or are likely to be) received can be found below.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. The ARRA has made it clear that every taxpayer dollar spent on our economic recovery must be subject to unprecedented levels of transparency and accountability. More detailed information regarding the distribution of funds through the ARRA can be found on the Recovery Act homepage.

Grant Applications

The grant applications posted in the FOIA Library are provided as a courtesy. Because the documents have been produced by entities outside of the U.S. Department of Education who are not subject to the Department's standards for the accessibility of documents posted on the Internet, this material may not be accessible to individuals with disabilities.

In addition, the process of redaction and image scanning may further hamper the accessibility of these documents.
