Communities and the Stimulus Package

On May 11th, a group of community leaders from across the nation gathered in New York to discuss what they are doing locally to improve their communities with the stimulus money. MIT graduate student researchers Uyen Le and Sarah Nusser presented an extensive flow diagram and spreadsheet breaking down all green-related stimulus package funds. They represented a team of 12 contributing students. Additionally, Nelson Johnson from Beloved Community Center in Greensboro NC, Burt Lauderdale from Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, and Derrick Johnson from Mississippi NAACP presented what they are doing locally, on the ground, in their own communities to take advantage of stimulus money.
