Hunger & Food Assistance Research Data & Publications
CDF gathered useful materials from federal agencies, congressional sources, and advocacy and other organizations so you can begin familiarizing yourself with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) funding and program activities available in your state and community. To ensure that children and families truly benefit from these increased funds, it is important to identify funding coming into your state that can be used to invest in children, families, and communities. These links will be updated on a regular basis, so check back frequently.
