Calhoun County, so far, has received about $6 million in stimulus money for projects from the federal government.

That does not include a number of other trickle down measures affecting the community, including increased unemployment benefits and direct payments to taxpayers, which involves several million dollars.

Projects directly funded:

Calhoun Schools - $675,000

Minnie Hamilton Health System - $199,000

Town of Grantsville - $1,130,000

Rt. 16 North/Resurfacing - $675,000

Little Kanawha Bus Building - $3,300,000

Several hundred thousand dollars could be spent by Community Resources for weatherization of Calhoun homes, using a $3 million grant divided in CRI's service area.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 is an economic stimulus package enacted by the 111th United States Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama.

It is intended to provide a stimulus to the U.S. economy in the wake of the nation's economic collapse.
