Recovery Act in the Heartland Region

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provided GSA with funds for investments in federal buildings and procurement of more energy-efficient motor vehicles.

GSA has carefully planned these investments to stimulate the American economy and improve the environmental performance of federal assets, particularly through the reduction of carbon-based fuel use. Many of these projects will contribute greatly to the sustainability and energy efficiency of federal facilities. Some features include:

  • Addition of photovoltaic panels to roofs
  • Replacement of chillers and boilers
  • Installation of energy-efficient lighting, air-conditioning and advanced metering systems
  • Improvements to mechanical systems and controls
