Using Data to Evaluate Whether COVID Relief Funds Improved Access to Economic Opportunity for those Most Impacted by the Crisis
Project On Government Oversight, United States

ABOUT: POGO launched a COVID-19 relief spending tracker that includes over 15 million transactions, accounting for $1.6 trillion in assistance, the largest picture of United States federal spending on the COVID-19 crisis available. The website includes an industry-by-industry spending breakdown, and a mapping feature with data on demographics and unemployment down to the zip code level. This living resource provides accountability and transparency on the government’s response to the pandemic. POGO is also using this tracker to conduct investigations that reveal waste, fraud and abuse, and our policy team is actively working with lawmakers to improve oversight of COVID relief spending.
