Friday federal funding facts

The administration was a little slow in posting their updates yesterday, so that’s why there wasn’t a post about this on Friday.

We still below $.5 billion in payouts from DOE and NSF. Remember: Vote in our poll on when DOE will cross the $1 billion mark.

Also, the DOE upped its promised spending over the last few days by$160 million and here are some of the most recent new projects:

  • $8.4 Million for Regional Sequestration Technology Training Projects
  • $300 Million in Clean Cities Grants to Support Clean Fuels, Vehicles, and Infrastructure Development
  • $101 Million for Weatherization Programs in Guam and Pennsylvania
  • $51 Million for State Energy Programs in Alaska, Guam and New Jersey

The NSF numbers indicate that it has allocated another $190 million. That’s good news, I guess, but again it is not immediately clear where the money has been allocated.

    National Science Foundation (1.3% paid out):
