Accountability: Stimulus Watch was created "to help the new administration keep its pledge to invest stimulus money smartly, and to hold public officials to account for the taxpayer money they spend." At the site, citizens with first-hand knowledge of local "shovel-ready" projects considered eligible for federal grants can rate their efficiency as generators of jobs and economic activity. You can vote on the efficacy of a proposed project, edit its description and the arguments in favor or against, and enter a conversation about it.
