Federal stimulus dollars: Who got what in Orange County

Posted by on Fri, Dec 11, 2009 at 3:17 PM

UNC received more than 78 percent of Orange County’s federal stimulus money—$92 million of the total $117.9 million, according to Indy analysis of data released today by ProPublica, an investigative journalism nonprofit organization based in New York city.

The total county funding equals $932 per resident.

Most of UNC’s stimulus grants, contracts and loans came through the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

NIH money went to research on salivary gland disease, autism behaviors, melanoma, Alzheimer’s, opiate addiction, genetic disorders and HIV. The Department of Energy funded further study of solar fuels, and the NSF awarded money to analyze the development of African American English and its Role in School Achievement.

Chapel Hill energy efficiency initiatives: $50,000

Capital funding for Chapel Hill public housing: $732,000
