Feds Give $15 million in stimulus to Arizona food police

Where is the money going?

The $15.7 million is going to eight teams, headed by the University of Arizona, where the UA is heading four of the teams and will get the largest share of the $9 million that has been budgeted for the teams.

The remaining $6.7 million of the grant money is going to salaries, advertising, a website and small projects – for example if a neighborhood association or school wanted shade trees and benches for its playground.

I’m sure those shade trees and benches are doing a lot of good for the people sitting on them.

The local funds are part of $373 million awarded to 44 communities nationwide from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the economic stimulus package. Pima County was the only Arizona recipient.
