Title: Socioeconomic Impacts of Recovery act Investments on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest
Author: Davis, Emily Jane; Moseley, Cassandra
Abstract: Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to create immediate job opportunities and stimulate long-term economic growth. The United States Forest Service received approximately $1.15 billion to promote economic recovery through hazardous fuels reduction, biomass utilization development, and infrastructure projects. When ARRA was passed, there was considerable political conversation about whether investments in the ecological infrastructure of public lands could create both short-term jobs and long-term economic development. The purpose of this study was to understand how Forest Service ARRA investments may have impacted local job creation and economic opportunities.
