The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.
Report Fraud, Waste and Abuse
The President has emphasized that every taxpayer dollar spent on economic recovery must be subject to transparency and accountability. If you feel Recovery Funds are being misused, or there are instances of fraud, waste, error, and/or abuse in the application and utilization of these funds by the Department of Veterans Affairs, you should report your allegations to the VA OIG Hotline.
