ARRA Extramural Construction
State-of-the-art research facilities not only advance science and medicine but also spur economic growth. Investments in research create new positions for scientists and support staff, advance discoveries, and promote education in science and medicine, all of which lead to better health and a more productive workforce.
Construction of research buildings requires many workers, from architects and builders to facility and technical staff. Jobs in engineering, manufacturing and sales result from the purchase of laboratory equipment and reagents.
One billion dollars of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds have been awarded to construct, repair and renovate scientific research laboratories and related facilities across the country. The National Institutes of Health is administering the grants, which are expected to create or sustain jobs nationwide and to help foster scientific advances that may lead to improved human health.
The awards are part of an overall $100 billion federal government investment in science, innovation and technology through the Recovery Act to spur domestic job creation in emerging industries and create a long-term foundation for economic growth. News Release
