How to keep an eye on stimulus spending

From Investigative Reporters and Editors:

Join IRE on Thursday to discuss how to best track stimulus money.

You can register for the webinar here.

The CARES Act is a $2 trillion stimulus bill with aid for workers and businesses, but the government hasn’t released many details about which businesses are receiving loans. Learn how reporters and watchdog organizations are tracking the dollars, and how their work can help you cover stimulus spending in your own community.

Panelists include Philip Mattera of Good Jobs First; Ben Popken of NBC News; and Cheryl W. Thompson of NPR. Doug Haddix and Lauren Grandestaff of IRE will moderate the discussion.

The webinar will also be recorded and posted on the IRE website for those who cannot attend live. The webinar is free and available to members and non-members of IRE.
