Wondering where all those precious TARP funds are going? You, the citizen, have a right to know! The Federal Government is offering a map showing Capital Purchase Program (“CPP“) transactions in the lower 48 states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The map can be manipulated and viewed in SML or as a Google Map. Hovering will show state totals and there are related links.According to the site:
[t]hrough CPP, Treasury has touched almost every banking market in the country, with investments ranging from as small as about $301,000 to as large as $25 billion in community, regional and national banks as well as Community Development Financial Institutions from Connecticut to California.
Whew! Prepared to be overwhelmed by the scope of these payments.
