Where the stimulus funds are going

I didn't get to this last week, but City Controller and Mayoral candidate Annise Parker announced the creation of a new website that would track what stimulus dollars are coming to Houston and how they're being spent. The website is here. It's pretty basic - just links to PDFs and spreadsheets detailing what's being allocated to Houston - but as long as that information is kept up to date, it should be useful. The State Comptroller has a similar website to track stimulus dollars in Texas. As the Observer notes, the grants and loan opportunities section will be of interest to a lot of folks. As the expression goes, this is your tax money at work, so check them out.
