Governor Deval Patrick's Budget Recommendation - House 2 Fiscal Year 2011

Governor's Budget Recommendation FY 2011

Federal Stimulus

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) into law on February 17, 2009.  Over 27-months, the legislation will provide an estimated $787 billion in total funding to various recipients to “jumpstart our economy, save and create millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century.” In addition, the Recovery Act requires unprecedented levels of transparency and accountability from all funding recipients.

A quotation by Governor Deval L. Patrick:

"Now is a moment not just of challenge, but also of opportunity.  The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act provides our Commonwealth with funding to save and create jobs now and lay the foundation for long-term economic growth.

We will ensure the agencies overseeing these projects do so with the integrity and transparency the public deserves."

The current estimate is that Massachusetts will receive approximately $14 billion in total ARRA funding.  Effective management of these funds has become one of the highest priorities.  The Governor tasked the Executive Office for Administration and Finance (ANF) with coordinating the management of ARRA funds across their lifecycle.  ANF has established a dedicated program management office – the Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Office (MassRRO) for the Commonwealth.  The MassRRO has been critical to the Commonwealth’s efforts in achieving accountability and transparency in the management of ARRA funds.


Closely aligned with Governor Patrick’s priorities and initiatives, the Recovery legislation has three goals:

  • To stimulate the economy;
  • To invest for the long term; and
  • To deliver meaningful government accountability.


Governor Patrick directed state agencies to apply for every dollar of ARRA funding available to Massachusetts, maximizing the employment impact. The administration is investing ARRA funds in housing and transportation infrastructure projects that create and retain construction jobs, education programs that create and retain jobs for teachers, and health care programs that create and retain jobs for doctors, nurses, and other professionals. Most of the recovery programs require the services of vendors, primarily from the private sector, which help to diversify spending across the state and maximize funds going to Massachusetts based companies.

We are diversifying ARRA investments to ensure equity across both industries and communities throughout the state.


Beyond short-term job creation and retention, Massachusetts is working to leverage ARRA funds to invest for long-term economic growth. These forward-looking investments are targeted toward six goals:

  • Maintaining our commitment to education;
  • Investing in clean energy;
  • Protecting safety net services and universal health care now and for future generations;
  • Upgrading the statewide transportation network;
  • Investing in our communities; and
  • Investing in Massachusetts’ innovation economy.
Maintaining our commitment to education

Fulfilling a deeply held commitment to educational opportunity, Governor Patrick has used ARRA funds to stabilize education budgets in Fiscal Year 2009 and Fiscal Year 2010. The administration aims to maintain and enhance access to educational opportunities for all students in the Commonwealth by making investments in innovation and programmatic and infrastructure improvements. Additionally, the Governor and legislature have enacted an education reform bill that improves the Commonwealth’s competitive edge in the US Department of Education’s Race to the Top program.

Investing in Clean Energy

ARRA will also assist with Governor Patrick’s goal to maximize the state’s investment in clean energy. ARRA funds will allow the Commonwealth to invest in wind technology, increase energy efficiency and renewable energy in clean water and drinking water management, and increase energy efficiency at state and municipal government buildings. Other ARRA funds are already at work improving energy efficiency in the homes of low- and moderate-income residents across Massachusetts.

Protecting Health Care for the Long Term

Over $2 billion in ARRA awards have been critical to maintaining the state’s health care and Safety Net programs. Stimulus funds have helped expand and preserve unemployment insurance, provide much-needed employment training and services, and boost the state’s Medicaid fund. With ARRA help, the state has been able to continue providing universal health care and protect social services for our most vulnerable citizens to help them through this economic downturn.

Upgrading our Statewide Transportation Network

While most of the ARRA funds have been critical in supporting state and local operating budgets, preserving healthcare, education and other vital safety net services, there are targeted ARRA funds for infrastructure investments. Hundreds of millions of dollars in ARRA funds for “shovel ready” projects are crucial to maintaining and improving Massachusetts’ roads, bridges, and transit systems. The Commonwealth is also seeking competitive grants to improve ports and rail stations, as well as for upgrading the high-speed rail network. Moreover, we are targeting our public infrastructure investments to support economic development projects, leveraging federal dollars to stimulate long term private investment in Massachusetts that will create sustainable jobs for the long-term.

Investing in our Communities

ARRA programs are also supporting the Commonwealth’s efforts to invest in our communities. Public safety grants enable municipalities to retain much needed police officers and firefighters, which helps to sustain key personnel that are needed for core services now and in the future. Housing-related ARRA funds will clean up properties in troubled neighborhoods, help create new affordable housing, make our homes more energy-efficient, and support community development projects. Tax credits and other federal incentives will also help increase the availability of affordable housing in Massachusetts.

Investing in Innovative Technology

Finally, with the help of ARRA, Massachusetts will continue to invest in innovative technologies to keep the state on the cutting edge of the economy. We have applied for competitive grants to expand and enhance the statewide broadband infrastructure to ensure full access to the information network. New investments in community health centers and electronic health records will allow the health care industry in this state to remain at the forefront of technology, to provide the most innovative health care to our residents and remain in the vanguard of the industry for years to come.


Governor Patrick has made transparency a top priority in the Commonwealth’s handling of the stimulus funds.  The Commonwealth’s transparency website,, is frequently updated with information about how stimulus dollars are being spent in Massachusetts.  In an effort to increase the level of transparency available to Massachusetts residents, the Governor has required all state agencies receiving stimulus funds to report transparency data that goes beyond what is required by the federal government.

Before the first stimulus dollar arrived in Massachusetts, Governor Patrick made it clear that there would be a higher standard of transparency and accountability applied to the handling of stimulus funds.  To that end, he tasked the Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Office (MassRRO) with coordinating the Commonwealth’s ARRA efforts. The MassRRO has worked closely with executive branch agencies, resulting in a higher level of transparency than ever provided for a government program.

At the same time, the Governor has also made the prevention of fraud waste and abuse a top priority.  Agencies responsible for handling stimulus funds are receiving guidance on how to improve their fraud, waste and abuse prevention efforts in the face of unprecedented scrutiny.  Additionally, work is being undertaken to spread awareness of existing fraud, waste and abuse reporting mechanisms, including state and federal hotlines and through online reporting available at

Cooperation from the Inspector General, Attorney General, and the State Auditor has created a formidable safeguard to ensure the integrity and public confidence in the expenditure of ARRA funds.


Twenty-eight different federal agencies have been allocated a portion of the $787 billion in recovery funds. Each federal agency develops specific plans for how it spends its Recovery Act funds. It then makes grant awards or contracts to state agencies, non-state entities (cities, towns, non-profits, private companies, universities, etc.) or directly to citizens.

These awards flow to recipients in one of the following ways:

  • Through a competitive bid or grant processes administered by the allocating agency;
  • Through approved allocation formulas;
  • Through discretionary grants distributed at the discretion of a particular agency; and
  • Through entitlement programs such as unemployment compensation which goes directly to citizens.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provides educators with the exciting and unprecedented opportunity to address some of the most pressing challenges in our public education system aimed at ensuring that all Massachusetts students will be prepared to reach their full potential.

In Fiscal Year 2009, 2010, and 2011, Massachusetts will invest at least $1.9 billion in ARRA education funding to: 

  • Maintain the fiscal stability of the K-12 and higher education systems and create/retain jobs for educators and staff members;
  • Maintain and enhance students’ access to educational opportunities;
  • Implement effective improvement strategies and innovative reform initiatives to address both state and federal education priorities; and
  • Support infrastructure investments in educational institutions
Maintain the Fiscal Stability of the K-12 and Higher Education Systems

Administrators at school districts and public institutions of higher education will continue to use ARRA education funding to address budget shortfalls, helping to ensure that students will continue to have access to high-quality educational programs and services.

In Fiscal Year 2009, $412 million from the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund was expended to guarantee “foundation-level” funding (the threshold required by the Chapter 70 public education funding formula) for all school districts in Massachusetts.  In FY 2010, approximately $170 million from the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund will be allocated to school districts as necessary to ensure that they reach foundation-level funding. 

For Fiscal Year 2009 and Fiscal Year 2010, a total of $102 million from the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund was allocated to state and community colleges, and a total of $118 million was allocated to the University of Massachusetts campuses.    

Different types of ARRA education funding – primarily State Fiscal Stabilization; Title I, Part A; and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part B – directly supported the jobs of 8,600 educators and staff members in school districts and public institutions of higher education across the Commonwealth.  In addition, ARRA education funding indirectly supported 850 jobs for child care providers in summer enrichment programs, allowing parents to retain employment while their children were enrolled in these programs.

Maintain and Enhance Students’ Access to Educational Opportunities

ARRA funding will continue to be used to maintain and enhance students’ access to educational opportunities.  For example, Massachusetts was awarded $24 million in Child Care and Development Block Grant funds to support child care services, and $10 million to support Early Head Start and Head Start programs.  The Commonwealth was also awarded $163 million in additional Title I, Part A funds to support students who are most at risk of failing to meet academic achievement standards, and $297 million in additional IDEA, Part B and Part C funds to support the education of students served by special education programs.  Furthermore, the state was awarded $363 million in additional Pell Grant funds and $9.3 million in Work Study funds to support students in public colleges and universities.

Implement Effective Improvement Strategies and Innovative Reform Initiatives

The expenditure of ARRA funding will also support the implementation of effective improvement strategies and innovative reform initiatives to address both state and federal education priorities. 

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has encouraged educators to allocate the ARRA funding to make strategic investments in educational initiatives and programs that will have longer-term impact.  District and school administrators, teachers, and other education stakeholders have the opportunity to use the ARRA funding to provide enhanced educational opportunities for students and to achieve real educational gains.

Through the Race to the Top Fund, a competitive grant program, a total of $4.35 billion will be awarded to states that demonstrate the capacity and commitment to investing in innovative practices related to four key federal priorities:

  1. developing rigorous standards and assessments;
  2. improving the quality of teaching and ensuring the equitable distribution of teachers;
  3. establishing statewide longitudinal data systems; and
  4. turning around low-performing schools. 

Massachusetts submitted an application in Phase I, and if approved, the U.S. Department of Education will allocate an award in the spring of 2010.  If the state receives a Race to the Top award, the funds will be used to implement innovative programs that will support students and educators across the Commonwealth.

In addition, eligible entities including state agencies, school districts, institutions of higher education, education partners, and consortia of these entities will aggressively pursue ARRA funding awarded through other types of competitive programs such as the Investing in Innovation Fund, the Teacher Incentive Fund, and programs that support research activities.

Support Infrastructure Investments in Educational Institutions

Administrators in school districts and public institutions of higher education have used State Fiscal Stabilization funds (in accordance with guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Education) to address infrastructure needs at educational institutions.  Massachusetts will also use two types of ARRA bonds, Qualified School Construction Bonds (QSCBs) and Qualified Zone Academy Bonds (QZABs), to support infrastructure investments in public elementary and secondary schools.  The state was awarded bond allocations of $145 million for the QSCBs in both 2009 and 2010 and $21 million for the QZABs in 2009. 


Departments within the Executive Office of Health and Human Services have been awarded $22.7 million in direct ARRA grants.  The funded projects assist disadvantaged populations in securing or retaining employment, provide resources to expand and support local public health infrastructure, and deliver a range of support resources for families hardest hit by the recession. 

The programmatic and economic highlights for ARRA grants include the following:

  • The state’s Federal Medicaid Assistance Percentage (FMAP) was increased beyond 50% when ARRA was passed in February of 2009. Massachusetts FMAP is now 61.59%.  Enhanced FMAP provided under ARRA extends through 2010. In addition, the H.2 budget recommendation assumes that legislation will be passed to extend enhanced FMAP for states through June 2011. The House health care reform and jobs bill both independently extend ARRA enhanced FMAP for six months (through 6/30/11).
  • The Department of Public Health (DPH) has received over $3.2 million in ARRA financing to shore up Massachusetts' public health infrastructure.  These include programs to expand, study, or enhance existing critical disease surveillance, identification, and response systems that are now underway. 
  • Additionally, nearly 8,000 children with development delay or disabilities and their families have been served by the DPH Early Intervention program.  This has been possible through $8.5 million in ARRA funding that enables DPH to maintain service and eligibility levels for children and families.
  • The Executive Office of Elder Affairs distributed over $2.6 million in ARRA financing to support the delivery of home meals and other nutrition support services for elders.  These resources go directly to families in the Commonwealth who are impacted by the recession and are working to care for their elders in home settings on stretched family finances. 
  • The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) moved quickly to streamline business processes to handle an unprecedented increase in enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) within the last year. Increased benefits due to the stimulus have helped more than 370,000 families (over 670,000 individuals) and will generate a projected total of approximately $416 million in local production, sales, and jobs for the Commonwealth between October 2009 and September 2010 alone.
  • The Massachusetts Commission for the Blind (MCB) and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) have completed the planning phase of several long term ARRA-supported investments.  MCB is poised to make a grant to support the development of a mobile eye care van for senior citizens.  MRC will also invest in a new information technology system to improve case management for MRC clients.  Both departments have hired a number of program staff to work in and over see MRC and MCB programs.  In both departments, ARRA dollars are working in the Commonwealth to bring resources, independence, and self-sufficiency to those most in need of assistance.
  • In November, Governor Patrick visited Washington to meet with officials to discuss opportunities for Massachusetts to develop health information technology projects with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This potential investment of federal funding, will allow Massachusetts to continue to play a national leadership role in using state-of-the-art technologies to transform the way we provide care to patients. Electronic medical records and e-health technology are key to driving down the cost of health care.  The secure exchange of health information is also vital to effective treatment and prevention strategies that will greatly benefit patients in Massachusetts. Details on an ARRA award to help fund these technology upgrades will be confirmed by early February of this year.


Massachusetts has set itself apart by choosing to fund transportation projects that will have both short and long term economic impacts -- and investing in projects like a regional transit center, multi-use paths or park-and-ride lots that build stronger, healthier communities.  Particularly in the second round of funding, the state has focused on projects that will result in direct investment by the private sector.

In total, Massachusetts will invest $437.9 million in Recovery funds for highway and bridge projects, and another $319 million for projects to improve transit systems throughout the state. Once advertised, ARRA road and bridge projects are moving faster than ever before. For example, MassHighway took a 120-day advertising/bid/contract award process and reduced it to 44 days.

As of December 31st, 66 highway projects were in the pipeline to construction worth more than $253 million.  Of those 66 projects, 45 contracts have been awarded with a total dollar value of $203.4 million and $34 million has been spent on those projects. More than 4,100 people are working on ARRA stimulus road and bridge projects throughout the state.  In addition to repairing and repaving roads in every corner of the Commonwealth, we are using stimulus funds to spark economic development and long term job growth.  For example, we are investing $15 million of stimulus funding to support critical infrastructure road, bike, and pedestrian improvements in the Assembly Square economic development project in Somerville.  We are also spending $35 million on a new Route 24 interchange in Fall River/Freetown to support economic growth in that important region.

At the MBTA, in just the first few months since the initial $164 million of ARRA funding was approved, 108 new RIDE vans are in operation, Silver Line service has been extended to South Station, the first of the hybrid buses are on the assembly line, and work is underway on all of the other projects.  As of December 15, the MBTA has entered into commitments (i.e., contracts, material and equipment purchase orders) for over $62 million, or 38% of the ARRA funds approved to date, and has hired 25 “temporary service project” employees from local union halls to initiate the work. Given the nature of the rail, bridge and commuter rail station work, construction activity and spending will peak after the winter months. 


Massachusetts will invest over $64 million in Recovery funds for formula grants to the 16 workforce regions across the Commonwealth. An additional $3 million in Recovery funds have been sub-granted from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security through its ARRA Byrne/Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) to support work experience opportunities for at-risk youth and young adults in 35 cities and towns. The Department of Workforce Development’s Rapid Response Unit works with local workforce boards to apply for Dislocated Worker National Emergency Grants (NEGs) to help individuals and communities recover economically from the consequences of plant closures and large-scale layoffs.

As of December 31, 2009, Recovery funds have made it possible for the Commonwealth’s 16 workforce regions and the 37 One-Stop Career Centers to provide services to 63,298 individuals. These services include job counseling, job search assistance, skill assessment and intensive case management. For eligible individuals, free education and training activities are also provided. The majority of these individuals have received personalized assistance from staff at the One-Stop Career Centers as they seek employment and develop or build the skills to help them achieve successful employment outcomes.

As of December 31, 2009, the Byrne/JAG funding is supporting work opportunities for 897 youth in 32 cities and towns in a program scheduled to operate until April 30, 2010. Many of the program participants, ages 14 – 24, work up to 25 hours per week, and take part in work readiness training that helps them develop the necessary skills to compete in the job market. Approximately 72% of program participants are in school and 20% are either foster-youth, court involved or high school dropouts. A high number of participating youths – 45% - have a physical or mental health related disability.

To date, Massachusetts has been approved for up to $5,334,055 in National Emergency Grants (NEGs) funding to support dislocated workers in situations such as: lays offs in a single plant closure of over 50 workers, multiple company layoffs in a specific region, and industry-wide layoffs in the Commonwealth’s financial industry. Initial NEG awards to the Commonwealth thus far total $3,921,301 and will support targeted services and assistance for workers laid-off due to a plant closure at Jabil Circuit, Inc. in Billerica, individuals laid off in the financial industry in the Metro South West area and individuals from multiple industries who were laid off from nine companies in the Metro South West area.


The Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD) estimates that $500 million in Recovery funds will come to Massachusetts claimants from the $25 per week increase in benefit payments to unemployment claimants.  (This includes estimates of $100 million for FY09 and $400 million for FY10.)  This funding is received through reimbursements after claims have been made since February of 2009. Five hundred and eight thousand and eighty five persons have benefited from the additional unemployment compensation. ARRA has also extended the qualifying time for the existing federal UI extensions.  This allowed 182,350 persons to collect federal extended benefits in 2009 who would have not otherwise qualified.

Over $162 million in Recovery funds will bolster the Commonwealth’s Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, the state fund that pays unemployment compensation.  The Commonwealth has also received $11.6 million in Recovery funds to support technology upgrades to our Unemployment Compensation system.

Programs creating or retaining jobs with Recovery funds for the quarter ending December 31, 2009 include:

  • The Byrne/JAG Youth Employment Program is supporting employment opportunities for 897 youths in 32 cities and towns, while providing them with additional supportive services.
  • The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) ARRA Youth Summer Jobs Program supported 6,908 youth in subsidized employment placements this summer. (Note: When combined with the Commonwealth’s funds supporting 4,069 summer YouthWorks placements, the total number of youths participating in summer employment opportunities as of September 30, 2009 was 10,977).
  • Recovery funds support increased staffing at the Commonwealth’s 37 One-Stop Career Centers to provide enhanced services to unemployed and regular job seekers and employers.


Stimulus funds have allowed Massachusetts to avoid significant cuts in critical areas of public safety. As a result of stimulus funding, positions across 13 public safety agencies, including state police officers, correctional officers, and parole officers have been retained. Approximately $13.5 million of ARRA funding was utilized to address a portion of the FY2009 budget shortfall. These funds helped maintain funding for over 700 public safety positions.

One major source of stimulus funding for public safety has come in the form of Byrne Justice Assistance Grants (JAG), of which Massachusetts has been awarded $25,044,649. Approximately $3.1 million of this amount has been allocated to the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development to be awarded to local organizations for the purpose of youth employment.

An additional $6.2 million has been awarded to municipal police departments for the retention of sworn police officers. These awards helped to hire, rehire, or retain 83 officers across 35 police departments. This funding supplements over $15 million in ARRA funding directly to cities and towns to support overtime patrols and community policing.

Another $12.5 million in JAG grants will be used to offset budget cuts at the Department of Correction. This funding will support medical and mental health services in the state prison system, creating jobs at UMass Medica l Center and other medical and mental health providers. 

In an effort to combine the Governor’s commitment to energy efficiency throughout state government, the Commonwealth also plans to execute contracts for eight energy efficiency projects totaling $9,416,000 that have been funded by the National Guard Bureau. Upgrades will include: new windows, insulated siding, repointing and sealing of building envelope, replacement of boilers, and upgrades to HVAC systems.

Municipal fire departments are also benefiting from nearly $20 million in ARRA funds to hire and retain firefighters in dozens of departments across the state. In total, over $71 million in ARRA funds have flowed to public safety services in Massachusetts.


With the tremendous increase in ARRA funds for the existing weatherization program, Massachusetts has been able to dramatically increase both the number of homes that will receive improvements and the level of improvements. The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) has been successfully helping low-income families lower their energy bills through home weatherization for over three decades. Recovery Act funding will provide weatherization services to an approximately 15,000 homes in addition to the 2,000 per year that have typically been done. Those families whose homes have been weatherized will save, on average, $576 per year on their heating bills. Since the start of the program on September1st, 1,310 homes were weatherized.

In the coming quarters, DHCD will continue to train and certify local weatherization agencies, creating more jobs and servicing a greater number of low income and elderly citizens.  DHCD is working with regional agencies to ramp up production to accomplish 17,000 weatherizations. This funding has been allocated among 12 Community Action Agencies as well as state assisted public housing and expiring-use housing developments.

ARRA-funded Community Services Block Grants are also at work for individuals and families in communities across the Commonwealth. DHCD has spent $4.7 million of the $25 million awarded to Massachusetts for this program, providing needed community development services. The remainder of the funds has been allocated to Community Action Agencies across the Commonwealth. The Community Services Block Grant program has already created over 650 jobs in Massachusetts for stabilization specialists, job developers, education specialists, homelessness prevention workers, and others, who together have served over 20,000 clients.

In the coming months, housing funds through the Recovery Act will continue to create jobs and provide vital social services. Governor Patrick has announced that over $ 80 million from the Tax Credit Exchange Program will jumpstart 18 stalled affordable housing projects by converting previously unused and unmarketable tax credits into direct grants. Another $45.5 million from the Tax Credit Assistance Program will jumpstart an additional 8 stalled housing projects. Together, these two programs will create an estimated 1,760 jobs and increase the Commonwealth’s stock of affordable housing.  These construction projects have tremendous spin-off effects in goods and services purchased and additional people employed.

Other ARRA programs will go to work to prevent homelessness, re-house those suffering from homelessness, and make other homes safer for families. $18.4 million in Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing funds will help prevent homelessness by helping homeless individuals and families find permanent homes. $9.1 million in Community Development Block Grants will support housing modernization and social services to build communities across the Commonwealth. Finally, the Commonwealth will invest $2.6 million from the Lead Hazard Control Program to remove lead contamination from homes in Massachusetts and ensure that their occupants can live safely. 


The largest ARRA programs under environment agencies are the State Revolving Funds for financing investments in drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities. Massachusetts' Department of Environmental Protection -- with the approval of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency -- has allocated all $185 million of the ARRA Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) money to 120 projects across the state.  Municipalities will be completing the necessary permitting to receive these funds by the February 2010 deadline.

SRF is a low-interest loan program that helps make major investments in water infrastructure facilities affordable for municipalities, public water suppliers, and regional water and wastewater districts. Under ARRA, as well as new Massachusetts legislation enacted in July to comply with ARRA requirements, financing under ARRA SRF will include both loans and grants for “green infrastructure” retrofits that will save municipalities money at these energy intensive facilities through energy efficiency and renewable energy.  The 120 ARRA-subsidized SRF projects reflect $825 million in total construction and engineering activity that will support economic recovery and public health in the Commonwealth, including 45 projects worth more than $220 million that have already broken ground and begun construction.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has also awarded $85 million from the federal Superfund to clean up hazardous waste at three Massachusetts sites. These funds will clean up New Bedford Harbor, the Hatheway & Patterson site in Mansfield and Foxboro, and Silresim Chemical Corp. site in Lowell. This will ensure that these sites are suitable for future economic development and recreation while removing environmental contamination.



Massachusetts has launched an ambitious $54 million plan for the State Energy Program funded by ARRA. This program focuses on energy efficiency and solar energy installations, which reduce the cost of energy and the greenhouse gas emissions that result.  The Commonwealth has already started the largest purchase of solar photovoltaic energy in the state’s history, with 12 projects at water and wastewater facilities totaling 4 megawatts. Solar stimulus projects will accelerate the state's progress toward Governor Patrick's goal of 250 megawatts of solar energy by 2017. By the end of 2010 the state is expected to have increased solar installations 15-fold.

Energy Efficiency in Buildings

The Commonwealth has also launched a competitive $15 million High Performance Buildings Grant Program. This program dovetails with President Obama's focus on significant energy efficiency retrofits as well as the state's recent landmark agreement that will make Massachusetts the number one state in achieving energy savings through energy efficiency.  The Program will support projects that demonstrate dramatic increases in energy efficiency in public and private buildings across the Commonwealth, resulting in significant fuel savings. In addition, $70 million worth of retrofit projects will begin in early 2010. The Department of Energy Resources (DOER) is also working with the Division of Capital Asset Management to leverage $15 million in Recovery Act funding for $200 million in energy efficiency retrofits for state buildings. 

Energy Block Grants

In the first quarter of 2010, DOER will also use $14.7 million in Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants to invest in clean energy technology and energy code training in municipalities. In addition, $6.2 million in Energy Efficient Appliance Rebates will encourage consumers to replace old, inefficient washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers with high-efficiency models.

National Wind Blade Testing Facility

Massachusetts has received $25 million in ARRA funding to accelerate development of the Wind Technology Testing Center, a joint venture between the National Renewable Energy Lab, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, UMass, MIT and other partners. This center, located in Charlestown, will create hundreds of construction jobs, as well as become the international epicenter for the testing of the next generation of large wind turbine blades.  This is the largest facility of its kind in the United States.

Although over $4.5 billion of Recovery funding has been awarded to state agencies through December 31, 2009, there are other significant programs that are expected to be received and spent in calendar years 2010 and 2011. The highlights of three such programs are detailed below.

Education - Race to the Top

In a program that will support Governor Patrick’s consistent leadership in education reform, the Race to the Top Fund provides $4.35 billion for investment in education reform. The federal Department of Education will reserve up to $350 million to help states create assessments aligned to a common set of standards. The remaining

$4 billion will be awarded in a national competition with Massachusetts potentially receiving approximately

$250 million. The application was filed on January 19, 2010.

To qualify, states must have no legal barriers to linking student growth and achievement data to the evaluation of teachers and principals. States also must have the Department of Education’s approval for their plans for both phases of the Recovery Act's State Fiscal Stabilization Fund prior to being awarded a grant.

Application requirements are for states to provide data that will lay the foundation for reform including:

  • Adopting standards and assessments that prepare students to succeed in college and the workplace and to compete in the global economy;
  • Building data systems that measure student growth and success, and that inform teachers and principals about how they can improve instruction;
  • Recruiting, developing, rewarding, and retaining effective teachers and principals, especially where they are needed most; and
  • Turning around our lowest-achieving schools.

The final application also clarifies that states should use multiple measures to evaluate teachers and principals, including a strong emphasis on the growth in achievement of their students. But the program also reinforces that successful applicants will need to have rigorous teacher and principal evaluation programs and will need to use the results of teacher evaluations to inform what happens in the schools.

The DOE will hold two rounds of competition for the grants. For the first round, it will accept states' applications until January 19, 2010. Peer reviewers will evaluate the applications and the department will announce the winners of the first round of funding during the spring of 2010. Massachusetts submitted its application on January 19, 2010.  Applications for the second round will be due June 1, 2010, with the announcement of all the winners by September 30, 2010.

On January 18, 2010 the Governor signed historic legislation which aims to turn around underperforming schools, promote innovation and choice and eliminate achievement gaps giving all students in the Commonwealth the chance they deserve to succeed.  The key provisions of this bill include the following:

  • The state’s first-ever Innovation Schools to serve as in-district charter schools developed and managed at the local level to implement autonomy and flexibility in how students are educated to the state’s high standards;
  • New approaches to underperforming and chronically underperforming schools by granting authority to the commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education and superintendents to make the changes necessary to allow for rapid improvement; and
  • A “smart cap” increase on charter schools in the 10% lowest performing districts from the current 9% of school spending to 18%. There is an additional provision whereby only proven providers with track records of success with students in the greatest need are allowed. New schools are required to present student enrollment recruitment and retention plans.
Education - State Fiscal Stabilization Fund – Round II

The Executive Office of Education submitted the application for SFSF Phase II Awards to the Federal Department of Education on January 8, 2010. The potential award to Massachusetts amounts to approximately $268 million. The Governor’s H.2 recommendation proposes to utilize $96 million in funding provided under the ARRA State Fiscal Stabilization Fund in order to fund the budgets of the University of Massachusetts, state colleges and community colleges at their FY2009 General Appropriation Act (GAA) funding levels.

According to the Recovery act, 81.8 percent of the State Fiscal Stabilization Funds (Phase I and II) must be used to restore state aid to school districts and public institutions of higher education in FY 2009, 2010, and 2011 to avert cuts and retain staff members.  The remaining 18.2 percent may be used for public safety and other government services, which also may include education services. The government services portion has already been allocated as part of the Phase I award.

As part of its application for Phase II funding, a State must demonstrate its ability to meet specific data and information requirements that will lay the foundation for reform including:

  • Methods for teacher and principal evaluation and the way that this information is used to support, retain, promote, or remove staff;
  • The extent to which the state has a Statewide Longitudinal Data System* and how it will implement a comprehensive system by 2011;
  • The degree to which the state provides student growth data on students and integrates that data into successful outcome-based teaching methods; and
  • The number of low-achieving Title I schools that are engaged in improvement, corrective action, or restructuring.

The Federal award announcements to the States are anticipated during the spring of 2010.

*These systems are intended to enhance the ability of States to efficiently and accurately manage, analyze, and use education data, including individual student records.

Enhanced ARRA Funding for Federal Medicaid Assistance Percentage (FMAP)

The fiscal year 2011 budget includes a total of $1.299 billion in enhanced FMAP, generated throughout fiscal year 2011.  These resources reflect Governor Patrick’s ongoing advocacy and anticipated success in helping to secure the expected enactment of a six-month extension of enhanced federal matching relief as part of pending federal legislation.  This approach is consistent with our actions last year in filing our fiscal year 2010 budget proposal while the federal recovery act was pending.  In the unlikely event that Congress ultimately decides not to extend enhanced Medicaid matching funds, the Administration would re-file House 2 based on revised federal revenue projections (just as we re-filed House 1 last year based on updated state tax revenue projections).
