What We Did

GAO’s work in Ohio focused on specific programs funded under the Recovery Act, as well as general issues involving the effect of Recovery Act funds. We selected the Weatherization Assistance Program for detailed review primarily because it was in full operation across the state. To continue our ongoing longitudinal analysis of the use of the Recovery Act funds, we also updated funding information on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Highway Infrastructure Investment Program; the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Public Housing Capital Fund; and three U.S. Department of Education (Education) Recovery Act education programs—the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF); Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended; and Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as amended. For descriptions and requirements of the programs we covered, see appendix XVIII of GAO-10-232SP. In addition to specific Recovery Act programs, we also reviewed general issues involving state and local budget stabilization and the state’s efforts to report on the use and effect of the Recovery Act funds by program.
