Washington, DC - Congressman Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) announced today the Department of Education has made $127,503,336 in Recovery Act funds available for the state of Iowa.

"Access to a good education is one of the most important factors in determining whether Iowa's children will have a chance to get ahead," Braley said. "These Recovery Act funds will aid schools across Iowa that are experiencing unprecedented strains on their budgets. As we continue to work our way out of the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression, it's critical that we continue to give our students and teachers the tools they need to strengthen Iowa's families and communities."

Iowa has already received $864,657,970 in Recovery Act funds. For more information about Recovery Act funds in Iowa's First District, visit http://Braley.house.gov.
