The objectives of this evaluation were to determine the extent to which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) funds were targeted to economically disadvantaged communities, and the extent to which jobs were created and results were achieved in those communities. We also sought to determine the constraints faced by EPA in targeting funds and achieving results. The Recovery Act provided a total of $7.2 billion for six programs administered by EPA. The programs funded projects related to the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, diesel emissions reduction, leaking underground storage tanks, Brownfields, and Superfund.
