By Staff

How is funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act affecting Colorado? That's the question to be taken on by panelists at a discussion Wednesday, Feb. 17, at the University of Colorado Denver.

The School of Public Affairs and the Franklin James Lecture Series will present the event in the Tivoli Turnhalle, Room 320, on the Auraria Campus. A 6:30 p.m. reception will precede the 7 p.m. panel.

Renny Fagan of the Colorado Nonprofit Association, Michelle Adams from the city and county of Denver and Mark Cavanaugh, formerly of the Governor's Economic Recovery Team and now of the Colorado Department of Higher Education, will speak on how the stimulus spending has made a difference at the nonprofit, state and local levels. They'll also discuss what impact the funding will have on Colorado in 2010.
