Bucks County’s allotment of $75 million in federal stimulus money has stimulated about 82 jobs in an average month over the last three years, according to records released by the federal government.
That’s not a cumulative figure, since the jobs have been temporary. And despite Bucks County being home to 154 stimulus projects, only a few of them created even temporary work, according to records published online by the federal American Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.
Most of the local stimulus allotment, $41 million, went to install traffic cameras and electronic message boards along I-95 in Bensalem and Middletown, according to ARATB. Area school districts received an estimated $23 million in stimulus funds to support education programs.
