[Source: SFAz] – Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced that the State is providing $10 million in federal stimulus funds to SFAz as part of a portfolio of Strategic Investments designed to position Arizona for economic growth and stability. The funds – $6.5 million for Research and $3.5 million for Education – will be provided through the Governor’s Office of Economic Recovery with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
This financial award reinforces the State’s commitment to supporting SFAz’s proven model as a public/private partnership, which leverages matching funds from industry and other sources to embed high paying jobs in the state.
